Belonging KickstART Exhibition and Workshop series

Belonging is an interactive community exhibition and a platform for young creative people from refugee and migrant backgrounds, to share their stories and explore their identities and cultures. Many of the artworks on display were produced during the two creative workshops hosted prior to the exhibition. During these workshops participants learned story collecting techniques, and fundamental art skills in drawing and painting. 

Belonging Kickstart Exhibition and Workshop series was curated and facilitated by Gabby Loo. This project will reach other Western Australian communities throughout the year.

Belonging is proudly supported by Propel Youth Arts WA, the Office of Multicultural Interests, and North Metropolitan TAFE.
