Craftivism [working title] will be a collaborative, playful and immersive exhibition featuring the work of contemporary Australian artists and artist collectives. Extending our understanding of craft-making traditions and the potential of various materialities, the works in this exhibition aims to subvert and extend these forms into the realm of activism and social change. The exhibition will feature large-scale participatory installations, inviting audience engagement. Many of these works encourage social connection between community members, and the idea of play and regeneration through collective processes.
