Thinking Through Craft will explore the relationship between craft and architecture, from practice to innovation.

Thinking Through Craft Panel Discussion

The Museum is temporarily suspending all public programming from Monday 16 March, for an initial period of two weeks to limit the transmission of the COVID-19 virus in our communities, and to prioritise the wellbeing of our team and visitors.

We continue to monitor the situation, and will review and update operations in line with evolving advice from the QLD Government and the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee.


The second talk in our Women in Architecture series, Thinking Through Craft, will explore the relationship between craft and architecture, from practice to innovation.

To uncover the role of craft techniques and traditions in driving enterprise, the panel will draw from the fields of education, architecture, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art, and craft research.

Increasingly, craft practice is being utilised to foster social and cultural growth and to drive innovation across a range of sectors. As such, speakers will examine the importance of practice, materials and sustainability, alongside socially expressive approaches focused on positively mediating between past, present, and future.

Thinking Through Craft extends the conversation generated by the New Woman exhibition, which reveals the art, personal stories and enduring legacies of Brisbane’s most significant and ground-breaking female artists over the past 100 years.

This event will be postponed to a later date.  If you are interested in attending please register your interest by joining the wait list here
