Talking First Nations Fashion in NAIDOC Week
The Piinpi: Contemporary Indigenous Fashion exhibition is curated by our First Nations Curator Shonae Hobson. It brings together a selection of seventy First Nations Designers, Artists and Makers to showcase the first major survey of Indigenous Australian fashion. The Talking First Nations panel event will be facilitated by Kaantju woman Shonae Hobson and Dja Dja Wurrung, Yorta Yorta Artist and Indigenous Academic Enrichment Advisor at La Trobe University Tashara Roberts. Shonae and Tashara will be crossing live to fellow guest Designers and Artists from the exhibition: Lyn-Al Young, Lisa Waup and Arkie Barton to discuss their individual works. They will discuss how the exhibition draws inspiration from the Indigenous Seasons/Times recognised by First Nations People and the growing strength of the Indigenous Fashion and Textile industry. The event will be live-stream on our Facebook page. https://www.bendigoregion.com.au/bendigo-art-gallery/bag-events/talking-first-nations-fashion-in-naidoc-week
