Flightpathproject is a low-key, long-term arts initiative that takes as its starting point the East Asian-Australasian flyway for migratory birds. This invisible line links coastal Western Australia with Russia and 22 other countries.
Flightpathproject is interested in literal and metaphorical approaches to the notion of 'flightpath' and welcomes ideas for contributions and collaborations with writers and artists of all disciplines.
Flightpathproject seeks opportunities to produce, present, perform and publish flightpath work. These may include publication of image and text; public readings and exhibitions; broadcast of recorded sound. Links to wide-ranging, multi-media perspectives on/definitions of/connections with ‘flightpath’ are being posted regularly on the Archives pages of this site.
Flightpathproject is coordinated by Virginia Jealous, a writer whose work includes journalism, essays and poetry. She’s worked for international NGOs including World Wide Fund for Nature and Red Cross, written many guidebooks for Lonely Planet and been a regular freelance contributor to the Weekend Australian. Her most recent collection of poetry and prose, Hidden World, was published by Hallowell Press in 2013.
Virginia lives out of a suitcase and on the road when not at home in Denmark, Western Australia. She takes a bird book and binoculars wherever she goes.
Flightpath: Thailand is supported by the Commonwealth through the Australia-Thailand Institute of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
