Through an EOI process, up to 12 participants will be selected to take part in a series of free intensive fashion and textile workshops, as well as small business skills and professional development sessions. You will have access to cultural mentors, design professionals, fashion and industry practitioners and experts.
At the end of the year, participants will have designed and created individual pieces with the intention of being showcased in an end of year exhibition. As part of the professional development opportunity, participants will also work closely with the KHT curatorial team in the exhibition development and design.
The Program will be delivered at the Koorie Heritage Trust in the Yarra Building at Melbourne’s iconic Fed Square, and in the RMIT University’s renowned School of Fashion and Textiles.
