This partner exhibition to Hidden Agenda: Socially Conscious Craft explores how communities throughout history have found new ways of living, protesting, and dreaming of creating a better world for themselves and the future. Curated by The Wilson, this fascinating exhibition features items carefully selected from The Wilson’s
Arts and Crafts Movement, local history, and Wilson family collections. Focusing on craft objects and archival material, the exhibition explores key themes of people’s rights, utopia, war, recycling and community.
