This event is over.


Welcome to Forest Warble!


You’re invited to an exclusive nature walk to find the critically endangered Straw-Headed Bulbul. Long sought after for its beautiful call, the Bulbul has grown more and more elusive. But rumour has it that a Straw-Headed Bulbul has been spotted in Forest Warble! 


Meet Benji the Bulbul as they try to figure out their identity and place within their forest community. Join us and help the birds of Forest Warble find a sense of belonging through play and imagination! 


We look forward to seeing you there! 


This showcase will consist of a workshop-performance and a facilitated discussion with the artists.
