This collection of beanies encapsulates the whimsical essence of the Alice Springs Beanie Festival and demonstrates the growth of the beanie as an art form and the imagination, creativity and fine craftsmanship in each piece. Colours of the Country III showcases work produced by Indigenous artists from the Central Desert region in this cross-cultural event. An exhibition embraced by a broad cross-section of the community, this exhibition will inspire audiences to laugh, don crazy headwear and bring out those knitting needles all over again.
