The City of Kwinana is embarking on an exciting new community arts and culture project to coincide with the Indian Ocean Craft Triennial 2021 (IOTA 21). The project will be delivered in collaboration with Perth artists Audrey Fernandes-Satar and Arif Satar.
The artists are involved in IOTA 21, an international project that will bring together makers, artists, and crafted works from a selection of countries from around the Indian Ocean Rim in a number of events around Western Australia. HOME/PLACE is a significant project for the communities of Kwinana as we are intrinsically linked to the Indian Ocean through our geographical location and by our cultural and community connections with the people and places of the Indian Ocean.
The City is seeking your participation on this project with a series of free workshops making creations using Zine and clay.
Artworks will be showcased locally across Kwinana venues to celebrate your journeys to Australia across or connected to the Indian Ocean, and to highlight your story of identity, memory and place.
Workshops are aimed at adults with school holiday workshops available for younger people.
Workshops will take place from the 30 August to the 14 October at Medina Hall, Darius Wells Library and Resource Centre and the Zone*.
It is recommened you attend at least two or more workshops on different dates.
*Workshops at the Zone are for younger people as part of the School Holiday program.
