Science in ACTion - Myco-Communities!

Friday & Saturday, August 10 -11, 2018/Old Bus Depot, Kingston, ACT

Our ‘Myco-Communities’ event will have on display participating school’s structure alongside Fungi Co’s own designs to form a ‘myco-village’, integrating multiple disciplines in a visually stunning display. Against this conceptually novel backdrop, Fungi Co staff will provide free workshops, lectures and Q&A sessions throughout the two-day event. Short information sessions will focus on how fungi have changed humanity in the past, along with discussion about novel applications of fungi and myco-design that may improve our lives and environment in the future.

The purpose of the event is to educate and inspire students, teachers, artists, and the broader community to get involved and harness the untapped potential of fungi as self-growing materials (building materials, insulation, packaging, fabrics, sculptural art). This is part of our broader mission of making Australia mycologically literate. ‘Myco-Communities’ will have attendees leaving as potential Change Makers in the knowledge that the Kingdom Fungi are indeed a Game Changer.
