We are super excited to have welcomed 10 participants to the next round of Creative Exchange. This time, we are joined by Kirsty, Deirdre, Andrea, Cheryl, Annette, Caroline, Betty-ann, Alison, Catherine and Bernadette (for a second round!).
It’s a lot of fun getting to know each other and how we each work – really looking forward to diving deep together.
We are currently accepting expressions of interest for our third round of the Duck ‘n Weave Creative Exchange program, which will begin in May 2021.
The Creative Exchange is a twelve-month program – we meet for three hours, ten times for the year and discuss a range of topics relating to your artwork, your aspirations and inspirations, and challenges you may be facing. Our main interests are goals, accountability and action!
And by ‘artwork’, we mean any creative pursuits! Among our participants, we have had writers, a pastry chef, a jeweller, textile artists, painters….. If you’d like your own personal cheer squad, we’re here for you!
The program will be run out of Adelaide, South Australia, but as we will be meeting online via Zoom, location shouldn’t stop you from joining in! This year, we have been able to include a few in-person meetups, and a few times, people living near each other have Zoomed from one location, which has been lovely, too. We’ll see what next year brings!
After the upheaval of this year, we weren’t actually planning much for the SALA Festival this year, but things have worked in our favour and now we present TWO wonderful events!!
First up, Duck n Weave + Friends will be exhibiting Safe Travels at Ginger’s Coffee Studio in Goodwood. We had an exhibition here in 2017, so it’s lovely to return! We are excited to be joined by our current and some previous Creative Exchange participants. Our work will be there all through August and beyond…
And then, at the end of SALA, we present Meet the Maker– a virtual gathering of artists we admire and envy!! Throughout the day, we will be speaking online to each of them about their art practice, but also how they’ve dealt with the threat and disruption caused by COVID19. Check out our M+M page for the details… It’s going to be an online adventure!
Looking Beyond was held in the gorgeous cellar door at Chateau Yaldara, in Lyndoch. We had the chance to spend a sunny winter’s day there as ‘Artists in Session’ – visitors to the winery were excited to sit with a glass and watch us at work outside.
Held at Ginger’s Vintage Lounge Bar in Goodwood, our first Fringe Festival exhibition as Duck ‘n Weave was a success! Our opening event was well attended, and included visitors contributing to a community artwork, The House of High Regard.
