Hope Butterflies swarm in Surry Hills Library

Two thousand Hope Butterflies swarmed into the Surry Hills Library in November.

The Hope Butterfly colony created by Erskineville artist Nick Baldas was launched in 2018 as part of National Water Week in the Blue Mountains.

This interactive community art installation created by primary school students and artists is crafted from recycled materials, donated artworks and butterflies drawn directly onto stencil paper.

Each butterfly is unique and carries hope wishes on its wings. If you would like to add your own butterfly to the colony, please email Nick –

The Hope Butterfly colony will be at Surry Hills Library, 405 Crown Street, Surry Hills, from November 16, 2019, to January 8, 2020.

Thursdays, 10am to 9pm
