Fashion Performance: We Are Masters of Country

Be mesmerized by the latest in Indigenous design and wearable art at this year's Fashion Performance

Celebrate Queensland 's Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander cultures through an extraordinary presentation of wearable art, fashion, dance, music, and performance.

Since time immemorial, Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander peoples have used plants and trees for nutrition, medicine for healing, and technology such as traps, nets, and weapons. This specialised knowledge has helped us to thrive as the oldest living culture in the world.

In our world view, science and technology are used to manage the environment for the benefit of all people. A great variety of tools, weapons and utensils were used to gather plants for food, fibres, and medicine as well as to hunt animals for food and clothing.

Through textiles and fashion, we continue to use this cultural knowledge to tell our stories to our future generations. Learn from us... We Are Masters of Country.
