IOTA21 - Indian Ocean Stories



This event has now finished. Please visit Tours & events to see what’s on at the Museum.

The Indian Ocean Craft Triennial brings together artists, makers and crafted works from a selection of countries from around the Indian Ocean Rim. Based on the theme of 'Curiosity and Rituals of the Everyday', the festival celebrates craft and the handmade, from home and across the ocean.

These themes are central to the collections and stories on display in the Tianqi Lithium Connections exhibition in the new WA Museum Boola Bardip. The exhibition explores Western Australia’s relationship with the rest of the world, looking through the lens of our relationships with our Indian Ocean partners.   

In this one hour tour, join Corioli Souter, Curator of Maritime Archaeology, for a fascinating talk about Indian Ocean artefacts and stories. Find out their significance and how and why they were chosen for display.  

Corioli will also be revealing the design concept of the gallery and how the theme ‘our place in the world’ was developed in partnership with communities.

Please note: This event is part of IOTA21: Indian Ocean Craft Triennial, supported by Lotterywest. Limited to 20 places only.
