Presented by Craft Victoria

Alternative Provisions presented the work of designers and makers expanding material practice as an act of making good.

The exhibition explored how unexpected and underutilised materials, driven by the notion of reuse, are developed and used in interesting ways by today’s makers.

The exhibitors foraged for their material, whether organic matter or discarded waste product, to create works that offer production alternatives, as well as a means to tell new stories.

By joining these makers in their search for more mindful provisions, we are led to re-evaluate how we engage with materials for production and the potential presented by seeking conscious alternatives.

The exhibition encourages the broader conversation on the environmental implications of human presence and the revaluation of our actions. Let’s make good on our responsibilities to the environment through creative innovation.
