Growing the Tail

NQ RASN’s recovery project Lizard Tail has found a temporary home in Diffraction Studio based in Flinders Street, Townsville. From there, locals can join the workshops set at the following dates:

  • 14 February 2021, 10am-12pm
  • 14 March 2021, 10am-12pm
  • 11 April 2021, 10am-12pm

Based on the work of and led by artist Hiromi Tango alongside coordinator Rachel Cook, Lizard Tail is inspired by the process of a lizard’s unique ability to drop and then regrow its tail as a metaphor for how we might be able to do the same with painful memories and emotions, as we ourselves rebuild. As a resilience and recovery project, NQ RASN would like to work with as many people as possible to grow the tail over the next six months! 

Additionally, if you can’t make it to the workshops but would still like to support Lizard Tail, please consider donating any old clothes, foam, yarn, textiles or fabric to the project.
