Indigenous Textile Residency

Recently we were privileged to have 5 artists and screen printers from 3 different remote Northern Territory indigenous communities with us for a week. Virgil from Injalak Arts, Kieren, Aaron and Gracie from Merrepen Arts and Deborah from Babbarra Arts. Joining them for their week at Publisher was Timothy Growcott, a freelance textile designer and printer who has been teaching in remote communities for several years and Marie Falcinella, the project coordinator, who made it all happen (and took all the beautiful photos included in this post).

It was an amazing week of exchanging ideas and techniques, experimenting with colour and connecting the Australian screen printing community.
