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.

To weave grass stories on Wiradjuri Country, 2021 Workshops

This multi-year skills development and knowledge sharing project is oriented around Wiradjuri agriculture, use of native grasses for weaving, storytelling, and the creation of presentation outcomes for exhibition.

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

Workshops will be for community that have participated in The Wiradjuri Grasslands Project workshops from 2017 onwards.
