We Must Get Together Some Time will exhibit a major body of new works in a self-titled multi-venue exhibition in Mandurah (CASM and ManPAC) and lead related workshops and cultural events from 17 October to 14 November.

We Must Get Together Some Time (WMGTST) is an artists’ collective practicing slow making, through active and passionate long-term creative engagements with non-urban places and non-human worlds. A multi-disciplinary team of 11 regional and metropolitan WA artists have been working together for 18 months. WMGTST use skillful practices and materials including textiles, natural materials, found objects, ceramics, video, and creative writing to create finely crafted works. These beautifully crafted slowly made artworks, stories of their making, and community workshops will open conversations with audiences and invite responses to questions and concerns about the Australian bush, rural communities, and the natural and cultural materiality of place in these precarious times.

Presented at Mandurah Alcoa Art Gallery (Mandurah Performing Arts Centre) and Contemporary Art Space Mandurah (CASM)

Artist Talks & Book Launch: Saturday October 23 1.30pm
