Collage isn’t new, it been around for thousands of years. But collage can allow us to be kids again. Think outside of the square and construct imaginary worlds, scenarios and even poetry. Discover how collage can help us loosen up, relax and even discover things about ourselves.
Lets have fun and have some interesting conversations along the way!

This event will be half social chats with a bunch of like minded queer people and half fun, educational and interactive workshop.

Who will be Teaching?

Yianni (he/him) is a Trend Forecaster by day and collage artist by night. Starting off early in his 20s as a fashion designer Yianni ran his own label and even showed at Australian Fashion Week. During the pandemic he discovered his love of collage and how that could help him clear his mind. In doing so he ended up showing at the Linden Gallery as part of the Postcard Show, at Queer My Head show at the Dax Centre as part of Midsumma which had a huge impact on him and more recently the Men on Men show at the Laird. Now he is starting to share his love of collage with others to help them realise the possibilities.
