Details

This weekly art workshop, for multicultural women living in South Canberra, continues in 2024. The class is an inclusive and welcoming space for women to meet, exchange ideas and create art together.

During the sessions participants have the opportunity to connect with others while learning and sharing creative experiences. The program is designed primarily based around drawing and painting, with the addition of different mediums according to the interests of group members.

This space is led by Yamile Rios Tafur, an artist and educator from Colombia and now based in Canberra. Yamile’s field of interests include everyday occupations, manual labour, and ways of belonging. Drawing, painting and making community projects are an important part of her practice. She is also heavily involved in completing large-scale murals around Canberra.
