This progressive textile artwork and exhibition celebrated place, language and connection to country. In July 2018, community weaving workshops in the gallery space led to a large-scale collective artwork by women from across the Wagyl Kaip region.
The exhibition featured over 200 significant artworks woven from natural fibres in response to place-based stories as well as the national NAIDOC Week theme Because of her, we can. The work encapsulated Noongar Place Names and stories of strong women led by local Elders and also included Albany’s multicultural community and their stories. 269 participants attended the workshops and 670 exhibition visitors came over the two weeks, with significant artworks of high quality being produced.
