Creative Exchange

One of our Creative Exchange meetups in 2019.

Duck ‘n Weave Artist Collective launched the first round of our facilitated mentorship program, Creative Exchange, in 2019 with a lovely group of inspiring artists. Since then, we have seen many aspects of the arts represented including jewellery, textiles, photography, ceramics, printmaking, painting, collage and writing.

Creative Exchange is for anyone who is driven to be making!

You might consider yourself a hobbyist or an emerging artist, or you may have an established art practice… Making art can be solitary at times, and having your own cheer squad can make a big difference to what your inner critic gets away with!

Our aim for the Creative Exchange program is to develop a community of artists at all stages of their practice, where we can support and encourage each other, and share useful resources. Just as importantly, we also assist participants to develop your goal-setting skills, and to recognise and work with your strengths, amongst other things.

Creative Exchange is held across twelve months – we meet for three hours, ten times for the year, discussing a range of topics relating to your artwork, your aspirations and inspirations, and challenges you may be facing as an artist. We celebrate your participation with a SALA exhibition in August.

Participate in Creative Exchange

There is no requirement to attend every monthly Creative Exchange gathering – just come when you are able. Our meetings alternate between our studios in Camden Park and Forestville, Adelaide.

Creative Exchange participation is by registration and the purchase of our workbook for $35.

The spiral bound workbook includes goal setting activities and monthly questions for discussion at our gatherings.

You will also be invited to join our private Facebook group, where the conversations are continued.


We usually meet on the last Sunday of the month from 9.30am to 12.30pm.
