Collage workshop for kids with Peter Waples-Crowe

Celebrate NAIDOC Week with a special workshop led by Ngarigo artist Peter Waples-Crowe.

In this hands-on workshop, Peter will explore his art-making process and guide you through the techniques he uses to combine found imagery, colour, texture and shape to create detailed and complex works that focus on his Indigenous, queer identity.

Using the materials provided, participants will be able to create their own artwork that captures their unique identity, experimenting with pictures, words and symbols.

This workshop coincides with the video installation Ngaya (I am) by Peter Waples-Crowe, currently on display at the Museum of Sydney.

Peter Waples-Crowe

Peter Waples-Crowe is a multidisciplinary artist who reconnected with his Ngarigo (Snowy mountains) heritage after growing up in the Illawarra as an adopted child. This work explores the intersection of an Indigenous Queer identity, spirituality and Australia’s ongoing colonisation. Ngaya (I am) is a continuation of his auto-ethnographic practice, referencing multiple and contested identities and disparate ideas and themes largely based on personal experiences.
