It’s been a while since anything has been uploaded. Unfortunately, there’s been so much happening that it’s hard to find the time to write it up. We’re still negotiating with Korea about the Scarf Festival tour in November. It seems a marvellous opportunity, but it’s hard to organise from a distance. We are aiming at developing an exchange so that we can include Korean work in next year’s Scarf Festival. Korea also gives us a vertical axis that complements the horizontal work happening through the South Project. Internally, we are working on the design for our new logos. We have a choice of three quite different looks and the choice will say much for the way Craft Victoria manages the huge profile that will be gained through the Festival of the South. This week, a major focus is the Make the Common Precious exhibition, which includes work by nineteen artists, including the Western desert artist Kantjupaye Benson, who recently won the Telstra award with her grass Toyota. The opening on Thursday should be a major event.
