Whispers and Weaving: Miwi wisdom’

a one act play written by Diane Bell and performed by Ngarrindjeri weavers premiered at the TarraWarra Biennale in Healesville Victoria on 16 August 2014.

The project grew from a request from Indigenous artist, Djon Mundine, co-curator of the 2014 TarraWarra Biennial to Diane Bell that she write an essay on women’s knowledge, how it is masked and hidden, for the catalogue that accompanies the Biennial.  Rather than write yet another essay, Diane wrote the play, which the curator then suggested be performed as part of the Biennial.  Thanks to everyone who donated money to help this project – Here is the link to the videos of the play performance and Q&A that Change Media has created from their recording at TarraWarra on Saturday. Enjoy!
