Island Welcome

Island Welcome is a group exhibition exploring contemporary jewellery as a gesture of greeting, curated by Belinda Newick. Inspired by the welcome garlands found in many traditional island cultures a group of contemporary jewellers are engaged to contribute a neckpiece/lei/garland interpreting the theme of welcome in response to current Australian immigration and refugee policy.
