The Wondering Project (Bendigo)

August 29, 2019

The Wondering Project (Bendigo) asked everyday women to reflect on a key experience of their lives which may have involved a dress or some other item of clothing. Thank you very much to all the wonderful women from the Bendigo community choir, Women Of Note, who participated in the project.  Thank you also for helping me set up the exhibition and sit the gallery at the fantastically historic Dudley House.  Thank you for sharing your stories and displaying your precious items of clothing that hold such strong memories for you.  I received many positive comments from gallery visitors about the project and many were moved by the honesty of your voices.  I enjoyed my time in Bendigo very much and would not hesitate to return should my work take me there in the future.

Ivan commented on how much he enjoyed reading everyone's stories and also how he found the link between clothing and memory to be quite fascinating

Carla's very personal reflection, conceived as a poem, was found to be one of the most moving

I would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which Dudley House stands, the Dja Dja Wurrung and Taungurung people, and pay my respect to their Elders, past, present and emerging
