Gathered Tides

Gathered Tides

Gathered Tides is an interactive installation, originally created for GROUNDED during the 2018 Adelaide Fringe, with textile designer Chantal Henley (Nughi / Mununjali).

Gathered Tides brings together locally based Indigenous artists in a collaborative and cross-cultural weaving experience that highlights the significance of nurturing land & water.

Kaurna and other local artists work together to create large woven nets that pay homage to the many Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander communities that collect, gather & live on country. The weaving installation incorporates customary and current techniques, material and styles that participants are invited to join and assist the artists at work.

During the weaving process listen to creation stories and deepen your cultural knowledge through shared stories of how fishing nets and other hunting designs are used in Kaurna culture.

This installation provides a contemporary space for cross cultural collaboration and yarning between the artists as well as an opportunity for participants to learn weaving techniques and cultural knowledge from the elders and artists alike.

YOU ARE INVITED to participate.
