Olivia and Bill Clarke
Among the many challenges of the year 2020, the impossibility of holding ANGAIR’s traditional Wildflower and Art Show loomed as a vexing loss, ironically in the Show’s much anticipated fiftieth year.
Bill and Olivia Clarke have addressed that challenge, working tirelessly to lead production of an online ANGAIR Nature Show.
It is their particular interest and skills in digital technology that are at the core of their contribution to ANGAIR. Bill brings extensive project management and IT experience. Olivia’s career focus has been the effective use of technology for learning. They initiated the digital asset management project (DAM). This work involves digitising the extensive collection of photographs and drawings of flora and fauna, as well as the diverse range of activities of ANGAIR, collected over its 50-year history. This repository has been a crucial resource for creating the virtual nature show.
Their remarkable diligence and focus have proved invaluable in what has been a massive task. Essentially beginning with a blank canvas, this website has been designed, constructed and brought to the public domain.
They have inspired and coordinated a very diverse group of contributors: interacting with insight, persistence and good grace
