Mob of people, weaving together, acting in concert
This exciting event is about encouraging skills exchange, sharing of knowledge surrounding fibre and basketry practices and exploration of artistic practices as Nation Building.
The event will take place over three days; afternoon of Friday 25, Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 March 2016
Over the Easter Weekend there will be people discussing their artistic and cultural practises located in the E3 art space at Wagga Wagga Art Gallery and the surrounding banks of Wollundry Lagoon adjacent to this area. Along with structured and open workshops on basketry weaving, bush dyeing, and other fibre based art practices there will also be walks and discussions about Wagga specific Wiradjuri stories and cultural significant sites.
There will also be Wiradjuri leadership and Nation Building sessions through the lens of artistic practices, in particular how art is a vehicle for healing; of individuals and communities, change and brave views and ideas. There are key communal dinners to provide space for the building of relationships and unpacking of ideas that have arisen from the sessions and workshops throughout the day.
