In connection with Jill Orr’s current exhibition, this
participatory workshop will be delivered as a way of sharing stories of the different ways of coming to Australia across generations,
nations, and circumstances.
Artist Dagmara Gieysztor will teach the group a simple paper folding technique which will become part of a group installation exhibited in the gallery. These paper boats serve as a metaphor but also a reflection of Australian colonial and migrant history acknowledging and paying respect to the traditional custodians of the land.

Dagmara’s creative practice has always been about story telling. English as her second language pushed her towards image based, visual story telling techniques. Experimenting with a range of artforms, mediums and materials from photography, installation to theatre, film, puppetry and animation. Culminating in her Master’s degree forming a pioneering area of visual dramaturgy with a professional practice in theatre design. As an arts educator, Dagmara lectures across various universities on subjects ranging from Design for the Moving Image, Sustainable practice and History through Pop Culture. She teaches Visual Dramaturgy in Australia and internationally in the preforming arts sector. Her socially engaged artistic practices include community engagement projects exploring cultural belonging and the role of the artist in Australian society; curating events, facilitating workshops, discussions and protest art. Her commitment to sustainable practice means she most often uses paper, natural or upcycled materials and ephemeral art.
