Event Details

This project is a collaboration between migrant women from Red Cross and Women’s Health Tasmania and artists Gaby Falconer and Jenny Dean. The women participating in the project were asked to identify an object significant to them and their lives, then worked with the artists to create drawings and develop prints.
Wear a Groove in the World promotes communication and networking between the artists, participants and audiences, creating an opportunity for migrant and refugee women to connect with community through art. For this project the artists worked with the Red Cross Connected Women’s group and Women’s Health Tasmania’s ‘Waste to Wonderful’ group, which is a textile sharing art group for Australian and Migrant women.
The exhibition presents individual and collaborative work created through the project alongside a film documenting the process and the women’s journey.
