Visit our Cure All exhibition to discover an intriguing history of health and medicine in the Tweed before joining this drop-in workshop. Using recycled textiles gathered by the community, you will create sculptural forms to contribute to Hiromi Tango's Healing Garden public artwork.   

Hiromi Tango’s Healing Garden is a major public art commission for the new Tweed Valley Hospital. It is a participatory artwork inspired by the Lilly Pilly plant - the Wanduin (Ganai), an important rainforest species. Its berries are eaten raw by Aboriginal people to strengthen immunity and are sometimes made into a medicinal pulp to treat sore ears.

“I hope that through bringing art and health together, we will be able to shift the notion of hospital environments to a space of nurturing, education and wellness,” Hiromi Tango

Pack your lunch and come be part of a joyous and reflective space for mindful art making in our sheltered courtyard.
