Fiji Girmit and Textile-making: A Lecture by Quishile Charan
2nd September 7AM, 2020
Join us for a lecture by Indo-Fijian textile maker, researcher and writer Quishile Charan where she will discuss the histories and context of her practice. Quishile creates textiles that stitch and thread together active forms of love, care and hope as contemporary resistance to present-day colonialism. She centres craft as a cultural knowledge system and upholds the values of textile-making through the relationships to the women in her family. Quishile’s craft, a labour that was gifted through being a namesake, encompasses language, identity, story-telling and a place of healing.
