Jude Macklin and Professor Mark Macklin are involved in an Australian Research Council project – Rivers of Gold: the legacy of historical gold mining for Victoria’s rivers 2017–2020. Professor Susan Lawrence is the Principal Investigator at La Trobe University, Melbourne, Mark Macklin (University of Lincoln) is the project’s Discovery International Fellow, and Jude Macklin has been invited to lead an art-science programme focusing on printing and printmaking to facilitate community engagement. This is centered around an international print exchange in which invited artists from around the world have been asked to reflect on a central theme to promote a transdisciplinary art-science dialogue.
