Asylum Silk Roads

Asylum Silk Roads

Asylum Silk Roads is a community arts project involving 100 asylum seeker, refugee and migrant participants. The project was built on a series of free stencil workshops held over a six month period in 2017. The resulting 20-metre textile artwork is a record of their shared journey in creativity.

To celebrate the exhibition launch, join the Asylum Silk Roads project team for a fun and FREE stencil workshop on the day of the launch from 2pm - 5pm. The workshop will showcase simple techniques which were used to create the impressive Asylum Silk Roads artwork.

A very special opening event will follow from 6pm, featuring catering and live Ethiopian music.

We invite you to be a part of Asylum Silk Roads in an evening to remember!

Location: Heritage Hill and Historic Gardens,  66 McCrae Street, Dandenong
