In July 2017, internationally acclaimed artist Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan will visit Cairns to work with community members to create an installation of handmade boats created from recycled cardboard boxes that relate to the idea of journeying to a new home and issues surrounding migration and resettlement.
Drop into the Gallery from 10-1pm on Thursday 20 July and meet the artists, learn more about the project and participate in some small boat building activities.
The final larger boats will be created over six months by different community groups and will be exhibited at the Cairns Art Gallery in a large-scale installation work, from the 2 March – 22 April 2018.
