This event is part of Fed Square’s Wellbeing Village from 26-28 August 2022.
Spaces are limited so please book to avoid missing out. If you can no longer attend please let us know so someone else can take your place.
Refreshments and materials provided.
Emma Stenhouse is taking the first steps on her journey in belonging and becoming connected with her Ngarrindjeri heritage. Her work is predominantly inspired by nature, connection to Country using elements of contemporary art and traditional iconography.
Emma ignites the flame of love for Country in other hearts and minds. A multifaceted creative, she explores diverse practices. Each piece is braided with learning, exchange between artist and viewer, a continuation of culture – a platform for cross cultural exchange
An experienced early childhood educator, Emma imparts her knowledge of culture, implementing programming including traditional indigenous creative practices guided by Gunditjmara elders. A gatherer and sharer of knowledge, she uses this to guide her own journey.
She builds capacity for others to learn and develop their own connections.
This program is presented with Fed Square as part of their Wellbeing Village with VicHealth.
We acknowledge the generous support of our public programming partners: Viva Energy Australia and Krystyna Campbell-Pretty and Family.
