kunanyi Mount Wellington
kunanyi is fundamental to our sense of place. Whether it is sublime evening light, a fresh mantle of snow or the soaring cliffs of the Organ Pipes, the ever-changing aspects of kunanyi loom large. The proposed cableway would despoil an ancient landscape and Aboriginal heritage with destructive new roads, massive towers, wires, aerial buses and an imposing building at the Pinnacle. The experience of looking at and being on the mountain would be changed forever.
About the project
Tasmanians love kunanyi / Mount Wellington – the Mountain. The OUTSIDE THE BOX / Earth Arts Rights team stands with community groups ‘Residents Opposed to the Cable Car’ and ‘Respect The Mountain’ in the campaign to protect and respect the natural and cultural landscape of kunanyi.
We oppose the proposed cable car development. The proposal is divisive. Community representations have been repeatedly ignored. The process continues to face serious questions about integrity and fairness. The development threatens the wildness and tramples on cultural sensitivities. That’s it… summed up in a nutshell.
OUTSIDE THE BOX / Earth Arts Rights uses its design expertise to support the campaign. We developed a wide range of campaign materials to help raise awareness and the visibility of the issues. The power of design pits itself against the institutions of power. Beauty versus might.
