An exhibition based on Professor Adrian Hearn’s “Who is Nature?” project has inaugurated the 2021 Ventana Latin America Festival. The exhibition’s opening night featured a live performance by Cuban dancer Aloy Junco, Mexican temazcal healer Leticia Rentería, and Adrian.

Introduced by Frankston City Council CEO Phil Cantillon, the exhibition uses virtual reality headsets, tablets, and visual projections to present First Nation understandings of “nature as a living being” in Cuba, Mexico, and Australia. It is open to the public and school groups until the 25th March at Frankston Arts Centre.
