    Why? 

    Reconciliation Australia’s theme for 2021 is More than a word: Reconciliation Takes Action, urges the reconciliation movement towards braver and more impactful action.  

    Through the act of a weaving workshop, we hope to create active dialogue and education between Numbulwar Numburindi Arts and our customers.

     

    Numbulwar Numburindi Arts is a new art centre partner for Koskela. The relationship was recently launched with the exhibition, Wuladhi Ruluj, a sustainable collection of woven works and collaborative lighting which is currently on display at the Koskela Gallery.  

    Located off the East coast of the Northern Territory, Numbulwar Numburindi Arts is built on self-determination and exists to keep Culture strong. The artists harvest ghost nets and reclaimed fishing nets from their shores to create sustainable woven works.

    We are hosting event sales through Humanitix. All booking fees will be donated to disadvantaged Indigenous students.
