"Fire is renewal, and fire is destruction.  Artist Tim Coad finds the charred remnants of objects natural and unnatural, and gives them new life. Discover his work in Knocklofty Reserve and listen to a fascinating exploration of Aboriginal cultural fire and its regenerative role in the Australian landscape, featuring Andry Sculthorpe and Billy Paton-Clarke of the Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre, with music by Emily Wurramara."
