The Social Outfit’s Community Print Programs are much-loved textile art workshops delivered in collaboration with people from our refugee and new migrant community, reflecting a hopeful and inclusive Australian Spirit.
Our 2023 community print theme is RESILIENCE and we are working with young people and their families from Granville Public School’s Community Hubs to share their creative responses to this theme.
The project facilitator from The Social Outfit will work with the students over a number of weeks, introducing a range of artistic techniques. Students create individual artworks which the professional artist will then use elements from to design a collaborative repeat textile print, to be sewn into distinctive Australian fashion. Proceeds from garment sales will support our charity to continue creating training and employment pathways for refugee women.
Student artworks and reflections on the theme will be exhibited in the windows of The Social Outfit at the conclusion of the project. Students, families and members of the wider community will be invited to a celebration and showcase event at the conclusion of the workshops.
