Asylum Silk Roads is a collaborative community art project which has involved about 100 refugees, migrants and people seeking asylum in Greater Melbourne. Participants took part in free stencil workshops over the last 6 months, contributing towards the large textile work on display at Heritage Hill Museum. This textile, Asylum Silk Roads, represents our journey to connect people and challenge ourselves creatively.
To celebrate the launch of the Asylum Silk Roads exhibition, please join us for the opening night. There will be artist speeches, traditional Ethiopian music and catering. If you want to join in the full experience, you can also take part in a free workshop to learn the art of stencil from 2 to 5pm – just before the opening. (Booking Link)
