What divides us, also connects us. Situated on the Indian Ocean, Converging Currents explores cross-continent and local collaborations, migratory stories, the Wanneroo coastline and marine debris, histories layered in heritage houses, domesticity, to the crafts of the fishing industry.

The Wanneroo Gallery plays host to a suite of solo shows, collaborations and group exhibitions by artists living, working and connected to the region. Story-rich, Converging Currents is embedded within the State-wide Indian Ocean Craft Triennial and is bound by the rituals of the everyday.

Gallery Hours: Wednesday – Saturday: 10am – 4pm
