Event Information

Join Isobel Morphy-Walsh (Taungurung) and Vic Morphy as we weave up a storm and reimagine how the river looks to Australia’s native water-rat, the Rakali.

Isobel will lead a series of workshops that will result in a communal artwork that celebrates the Rakali. Acknowledging the deep connections that First Nations community has to this species, come and learn the delicate art of weaving at these upcoming workshops and contribute to several 3D communal woven artworks.

Walking Together for Rakali is a collaboration between the Threatened Species Conservancy and Footscray Community Arts.

This project is informed by First Nations stories and knowledge and stands alongside the community-led research that has been underway all year to assess the health of the Rakali in the waterways around the bay in Naarm.
