Wonderment Walk aims to create open-air galleries which excite and inspire, galleries without walls and without boundaries, open to the public free of entry or exhibition charges.
Our projects are drawn from an arts base but also combine science and mathematical disciplines. The works are intended to engage the public in the art whilst inspiring curiosity and encouraging innovative thoughts and expression. Beginning in, but not limited to, the city of Melbourne, the artworks will form walks around the city connecting various attractions in and around trafficked areas.
