خانه Home
12th October - 30 November, Māngere Arts Centre

This exhibition celebrates the work of a small section of Auckland’s Muslim migrant communities through textiles and skilled crafts. It presents slow design as a means of appreciation, authenticity and knowledge.

It grew out of the women’s collective who use textile and crafts, based at the Māngere East Community Centre.  They share their skills and textile craft alongside a social enterprise Companion Co-design, which celebrates cross-cultural co-creating. The exhibition features an abundance of embellished found and foraged textiles, new works and explores what is lost and what is gained in moments of cross-cultural translation.
