The Jellyfish Chronicles is inspired by jellyfish Gina sees and films during the sailing season on the Swan and Canning Rivers. This project offers curious and challenging connections to our emotions and wellbeing. This is the latest ‘rivery’ chapter for Gina who has professionally investigated, facilitated and contributed to the cultural profile of Perth’s rivers over the past eight years. Some of those projects include developing the statement of significance for the Swan and Canning Rivers, auditing the social and heritage values of the Rivers, creating the Rivers of Emotion Project with CHE and most recently in 2014 completing marli riverpark-Interpretation Plan for the Swan Canning Rivers as project manager and author.
