The opening on Thursday night of Craft Cubed was of Olympic proportions and yet somewhat humbling for the Northcity4 crew. The Princess of Tonga was in attendance hence an array of formalities were necesaary and yet a rich celebratory cultural experience was had. The Princess of Craft, Ramona Barry opened the Northcity4 installation with brilliant words of support and encouragement…thanks again Ramona.
The Melbourne Tapa; a collaborative work by Pacific Islander women stretched the entire length of the Craft space. Its public opening was celebrated with singing and dancing with women in glorious woven grass wraps and paper skirts. Check out Craft’s facebook page for more images.
We encourage you to visit Craft in the coming weeks and check out the Tapa… you never know what you might find…
…and while you’re there don’t forget to check out the NC4 window install and pop into Gallery 3 where you have the unique opportunity to be a tool and share it with the NC4 community.
