Island Welcome is a group exhibition exploring contemporary jewellery as a gesture of greeting. Inspired by the welcome garland found in many traditional island cultures, the artists have each made a neckpiece interpreting the theme of ‘welcome' in response to current Australian immigration and refugee policy.

This builds on the exhibition shown as part of Radiant Pavilion 2017, with six new artists contributing to the conversation.

Craft will mark World Refugee Day with two events on Wednesday 20 June.

The exhibition will be opened by Jana Favero, Director – Advocacy and Campaigns, Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.

Curated by Belinda Newick.
