The Merri Creek is an iconic natural feature of Melbourne’s northern suburbs. Through the prisms of sustainability and indigenous culture, ‘Learning for the Future: Children and the Merri Creek’ activates the community's experience of place through innovative art and science events by award-winning local artists and science collectives. As well as offering the community a unique celebration of place while promoting our connection to the environment and empowering the younger generations of today in making Moreland a better place for all forms of life to flourish.

How can we help our children prepare to deal with Australia’s past and uncertain future? Integrating indigenous knowledge, art and science, this is a year long learning project offering over one hundred school and public workshops to children and adults in Moreland. Public events will be held across three hubs, each connected with a different circle of the community: Moreland Primary School, East Coburg Community House and Merri Creek. The project will be welcoming to all, oriented toward life-long learning and sustained over a long period to allow deeper community connections and shared, hands on learning experiences.
