Local Objects

PRESENTED BY


Gaffa Creative Precinct

Local Objects

In the ruins of Wall Street, the Local Food movement built a US$4.8B economy of integrity. Economist, activist and artist Amory Starr shows how this model can be applied to other economic sectors.

The Local Objects movement proves that social change can happen when new ideas and desires are incubated in open spaces of experimentation.

Come and see three artisans who are turning the objects they make into tight knit communities, through their processes and collaboration.

Discover how artists and makers can broaden and diversify their skills, make interactions more sensuous, educate consumers about durability and patina, link their work to ecological and social sustainability, and create opportunities for meaningful, committed, transactions.

Opening: July 25, 6pm – 8pm
Then open Monday to Friday, 10am – 6pm
and Saturdays, 11am – 5pm.
Closes: 5 August, 6pm.
