Art of the Skins

This event is now in the past.

Awakening South East Queensland historical traditions through contemporary art, Art of the Skins revitalises the practice of possum skin cloak making.

Be inspired by how knowledge is gained and passed on through six richly decorated cloaks, collaboratively designed by Aboriginal community members.
