Hi, I'm the Creative Producer of the exciting Wayapawarr Watnanda Marangee project and I really look forward to seeing lots and lots of circular woven meeting places pop up and decorate public spaces all over the country and the world!
Imagine seeing your own and others' woven creations on windows overlooking streets, off high-rise balconies, attached to trees in the park, on park benches, light posts, etc. It will be as if the stars have descended upon the earth to light up these anxious and insecure times!
Over time, we will all feel that wonderful sense of connection and community we yearn for as humans.
I'm thrilled about the diversity our fabulous First Nations weavers have to offer, and each one of them will give you their own unique cultural experience you will remember.
Share your creations on our Instagram page and tag #wayapawarr to form a virtual tapestry of our connection.
Get your friends, family, sports club involved and help us make this project go viral to counteract COVID-19 with positivity, joy & laughter.
A special thanks to the City of Melbourne for supporting us with their COVID-19 Arts Grant and the Surf Coast Shire's Small Grant.
