Alongside the exhibition Janet Laurence: After Nature, there is a series of public programs, including: Talking Trees a collaboration with Sydney University where philosophers, poets and scientists bring aspects of trees to a public audience; and Janet Laurence's interactive (Desire) Elixir Lab' a performative installation which was recently shown at the Inhotim Institute, Brazil.

Desire (Elixir Lab) is a unique sensory experience that involves the tasting of medicinal plants in the form of liquid elixirs. Facilitated by a botanist performer, participants gain insight into the cultural and biochemical connections between the body and plants.
