Wayapawarr Watnanda Marangee: A COVID-19 Arts Response Project

An extraordinary project from Aunty Bronwyn Razem and Katja Nedoluha: Wayapawarr Watnanda Marangee is a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The project invites everyone to engage their hands and hearts, and be part of creating a giant tapestry of woven circles to show our resilience, feel empowered and bring about personal transformation in this time of insecurity and anxiety.

Wayapawarr Watnanda Marangee means ‘we all come together in a meeting’, in Gunditjmara language. Although we cannot come together physically, our project joins community members across all ages, genders and abilities who find themselves in self-isolation, via the ancient art of weaving. Their project invites you to learn a traditional weaving technique, weave circular ‘meeting places’ and decorate public spaces with your woven creations.
