Skilled Hands, Shared Culture explores the important role art, craft and design practices play in sustaining culture and community in Australia and Vietnam.
In celebration of the 2020 Vietnam Creativity Festival, Vietnamese and Australian designers, artists and crafts people come together in this RMIT Gallery online exhibition highlighting artists whose work contributes to supporting vibrant, sustainable communities.
While artists may not necessarily consider themselves agents of social change, the nature of their work has the power to foster a community spirit that creates a sense of belonging and self-worth and deeply impacts communities, economies, and creative expression.
