Lead Artist: Cecile Williams will visit Geraldton each month from late May to September 2021 to inspire, upskill and work with the Midwest crafting, art and Multicultural groups in making works responsive to the IOTA21 themes.

WHAT is CRAFT? Objects made by people with their hands. These can be:

• Domestic - objects we use every day – a cup for our tea, a bowl for our soup

• Dress and Adornment - the clothes we make and the jewellery we wear that express ourselves. The ways we do our hair, paint our bodies

• Spiritual – how we honour our beliefs – offerings, candles, shrines

• Shelter – how we build shelters for ourselves and our families
