THE WIRED LAB is an artist led organisation evolving interdisciplinary art practices in rural Australia. We create opportunities for the research, production and presentation of projects that connect international and local artists with communities in new ways. Our curated programs and projects involve artists working from a regional context whilst producing outcomes of local and global relevance. Our activities range from skills development for young people, seniors, emerging and mid career artists, to the creation, presentation, publication and promotion of new works and major live arts projects.

This project includes a series of free weekend workshops for the Aboriginal community that will build skills while sharing knowledge about Country and the creation of cultural objects.

This workshop program will extend into 2020 and 2021. Objects created and skills developed throughout the course of the project will be on display via presentations at both The Wired Open Day 2020 and as part of an exhibition at the Museum of the Riverina in 2021.
