Local BirdLife groups including Coffs Coast Bird Observers, Bellingen Birders and BirdLife Northern NSW are all enthusiastically on board, as are National Parks and Wildlife Service. The project will involve the two high schools, local artists Sara Bowen, JP Willis, Jo Elliott and poet John Bennett; the members of two local birding groups, Coffs Coast Bird Observers and Bellingen Birders; National Parks and Wildlife Service (NP&WS) staff, including local Gumbaynggirr Elder Uncle Mark Flanders and staff of the gallery.
As well as entire the Overwintering Project Print Portfolio, the Coffs Harbour exhibition will include works by local artists and the students from the local high schools. The Gallery recently got a grant to bring together high school students, Elders, scientists, birders, poets and artists to learn about shorebirds and make art, culminating in a 'steamroller print' project to be exhibited alongside other works inspired by local migratory shorebirds and their habitat! Many thanks to the gallery curator, Jo Besley, for her amazing support of and vision for the project.

Hobson's Bay City Council is working with The Overwintering Project and its partners including Bird Life Australia to highlight the unique birdlife and habitats that we have within our local area. The exhibition will result from a series of free workshops run monthly between September 2018 and April 2019.
Through a series of artist-led workshops, the project will focus on migratory shorebirds and their current vulnerability. Artists attending the workshops, to be held at various local habitat sites and the Woods Street Art Space in Laverton, are invited to contribute original prints created in response to the unique nature of local Hobsons Bay bird habitats. Following the workshop program a selection of prints produced from The Overwintering Project workshops will be displayed in May 2019 at the Louis Joel Gallery in Altona. This exhibition will be part of the 2019 Hobson's Bay World Migratory Bird Day Festival.
