Island Welcome is a group exhibition exploring contemporary jewellery as a gesture of welcome. Inspired by the welcome garlands of many traditional island cultures, a group of contemporary jewellers have made a neckpiece, lei or garland interpreting the theme of welcome and considering current Australian immigration and refugee policy.

Island Welcome presents the work of Jane Bowden, Liv Boyle, Michelle Cangiano, Jess Dare, Nicky Hepburn, Kath Inglis, Pennie Jagiello, Manon van Kouswijk, Sim Luttin, Vicki Mason, Belinda Newick, Lauren Simeoni, Lucy Simpson, Alice Whish and Melinda Young.

Island Welcome aims to facilitate a quiet contemplative experience of adornment as a vehicle for political discourse, empathy and shared humanity.
