A collaborative project with people seeking asylum in Australia

Working in Little Woods Gallery over the month long exhibition slot, Amy-Jo Jory and Ieuan Weinman ran workshops with people seeking asylum in Australia. Using found materials, assemblage techniques, painting and sculpture we exchanged ideas and artistic practices, and worked together towards a celebration party and exhibition launch. People painted images directly onto the gallery wall, including a ‘gole laleh’ flower from the mountains in Iran, and a large image of a leafy Genesh.

The celebrations included performances by The FlybzRiak Riak, Bangs, Abe Ape and Sri Lankan dancing and singing, with the exhibition being formally opened by City of Yarra Mayor Jackie Fristacky.
