On the Wild Side is a group exhibition featuring 18 artists from YourDNA Creative Arts, an arts school for neurodiverse adults and adults living with a disability.

The artists have researched flora and fauna found in Maroondah City to create a range of 2D and 3D artworks depicting the characteristics of local plants and animals. The exhibition includes paintings, drawings, mosaics and sculptures highlighting the importance of rare and endangered vegetation and wildlife living in Maroondah.

The exhibition aims to raise awareness of threatened species and give the opportunity to see the local natural environment through the lens of neurodiverse artists and artists living with a disability.
