Weaving Bridges Project 2016
Building on the success of the Weaving Bridges Project since 2013, Manly Environment Centre, Manly Community Centre, Northern Beaches Aboriginal Community members, Northern Beaches Council and Sanctuary Respite Centre, North Head, joined together for an exciting new weaving project in 2016 – using the theme from the Guringai Festival ‘Through My Eyes’ along with this year’s NAIDOC Week theme of ‘Songlines’.
The theme we chose this year was inspired by our native flowers which represent the bush and country along which ‘Songlines’ travelled. Each piece was individually woven ‘through my eyes’, with work by more than 150 participants in this year’s Weaving Brides Project.
The project culminated with installation of the woven art works on the Queenscliff Lagoon bridge and a launch attended by more than 100 people.
