We’ve been editing artist stories with Magpie Goose! YAY!
We have a history of creative storytelling with Aboriginal artists across the Kimberley, so listening to these artists talk about their designs feels like a homecoming. Adam and I spent lots of time watching the footage together and marvelling at the knowledge and history captured in the artwork.
We also love the spirit of inclusion and opportunity that supports Magpie Goose, and we’re excited to help people connect and celebrate with Aboriginal people across Australia. The clothes are so joyous, and so are Maggie and Laura. And so is their little companion - Chappy!
Watch out for more designs and videos in 2019.
