Futuring Craft Conference WA

September 17, 2021 - September 19, 2021


Welcome to the Futuring Craft conference presented by the Indian Ocean Craft Triennial IOTA21. Futuring Craft addresses matters that traverse craft from design, environment, economies and fundamental human rights.

Bringing together academics, makers and the craft sector from Australia and countries of the Indian Ocean and beyond, the IOTA21 conference supports the themes inherent in the IOTA21 international exhibition ‘Curiosity and Rituals of the Everyday’.

The mix of keynote lectures, practice-led presentations, workshops, talks and panel discussions – presented by a diverse selection of presenters, artists and guests – will discuss ideas, perspectives and provocations pertinent to contemporary craft in all its manifestations.
Speakers include human rights activists, visual artists, academics, architects, and designers working across diverse independent practice, universities, galleries and workshops.
