Five contemporary female artists have collaborated with local people and communities over the last twelve months to craft new art work exploring some of the many stories about Ringwood and the surrounding area.

Artists worked with numerous local community mentors and groups including Maroondah Handicrafts Inc, Dr Graeme Lorimer, Friends of Bungalook Reserve and Maternal Health Maroondah. Crafted History People and Place is both an exhibition and a fascinating series of events and activities about the wealth of knowledge in our collective social fabric.
