The Sydney Knitting Nannas present a discussion on the use of knitting as a tool for non-violent political activism and facilitate a banner-making workshop.
Knitting Nannas Against Gas (KNAG) are a nationwide activist network who peacefully and productively protest against the destruction of land and water by exploration and mining of Coal Seam Gas and other non-renewable energy.
Presented in conjunction with 'Material Place: Reconsidering Australian Landscapes' at UNSW Galleries 21 June – 7 September 2019.
'Material Place' gathers artists who are thinking through the materiality of the Australian landscape and its representation — whether in local ochres or on Google Earth. The intricate connection between places and peoples is a focus of reflection for many of the artists, some of whom chart First Nations' intergenerational relationships to Country.
