Black Sassy Artist's Collective
The Black Sassy Collective is a community collective of artisans, poets, creatives and musicians, inspired by the wilds of Tasmanian forests, rivers and seas. It focuses on encouraging and empowering, inspiring and educating peoples about the beauty and integral nature of being part of these wild lands. The collective is based at the Huon Valley Environment Centre, Tasmania. The collective's story began at its embryonic beginning, when monthly trips to the Southern forests of Tasmania were instigated as a means of viewing and appreciating the rapidly diminishing vastness of forest seas. The Weld Echo was the spawned baby of this project, which has developed into a very popular annual collaborative exhibition, and is a very important fundraiser for forest protection campaigns. Following this, The Black Sassy Collective has been part of a number of projects around Australia and monthly exhibitions in Huonville at GLO cafe. Black Sassy is a support body for all types of creative explosions and is currently in amidst of a number of projects. You can also find the Black Sassy Collective group on Facebook.
