ABOUT WORN OUT WORN ART
For over 14 years Mundaring Arts Centre Inc. has coordinated the Worn Out Worn Art (WOWA) parade captivating audiences and showcasing wearable costume designs by local primary and secondary school students, in a celebration of creative thinking and environmental consciousness.
Previously held at the annual Darlington Arts Festival, the performance was held for the first time in 2018 at Midland Junction Arts Centre and welcomed school students and adults to participate in this celebration of wearable art for the body.
In the lead up to the parade, workshops are held for children and adults to customise recycled materials and upcycle clothing to reconnect with ‘lost skills’. Working with industry professionals including designers, makers and artists, workshops explore fabric manipulation techniques, clothing deconstruction/reconstruction and sculptural forms using all using recycled, upcycled and repurposed materials.
WOWA 2019 ENTER NOW
It’s not too soon to start planning for WOWA 2019!
With the exciting theme of The Elements – from the Sea, Fire, Earth and Sky, take up the challenge and design, create and parade wearable art from reinvented, recycled materials.
In 2019 WOWA will be held at Midland Junction Arts Centre (MJAC). School students and adults are invited to participate in this celebration of creative thinking and environmental consciousness.
Enter your wearable art piece made from re-purposed and recycled materials to be involved in this exciting project. The creations will be presented at the showcase with a parade at Midland Junction Arts Centre Saturday 9 November from 7 - 8.30pm. You can choose to wear your own creation or, if the stage isn’t your thing, nominate a friend. There is a full dress rehearsal prior on the day of the performance.
