This colourful exhibition encapsulates the whimsical essence of the Beanie Festival. The collection also highlights the works produced by Indigenous artists from the Central Desert region who are regular collaborators in this cross cultural event.
Over 90 beanies are on display which will inspire audiences to laugh, don crazy headwear and bring out those knitting needles all over again.

For information on additional knitting and crocheting workshops please visit the Burrinja website.

Touring exhibition from Artback NT: Arts Development and Touring in conjunction with the Australia Council for the Arts and Northern Territory Government Department of Natural Resources, Environment, the Arts and Sport
