The Indian Ocean Craft Triennial is the most important craft event in a generation. It identifies a region that has a rich history of cultural exchange but is often overlooked in the global powerplays of the 21st century. This triennial opens up a way of appreciating the expanded role of craft, not only as original unique works in a gallery, but also as objects that are integrated into everyday life, including the rituals that give it meaning. Join Kevin Murray as he discusses how the beginning of what promises to be a groundbreaking series of events can also be time to plant seeds for future possibilities for a flourishing craft world.

Kevin Murray will speak to us from Victoria in this interactive virtual speaker series event. Participants will receive a link via email prior to the day.
