Please join us for a talk by local creative Sioux Tempestt, the Artist-in-Residence at Whitford Library. Sioux is currently delivering a series of creative workshops with the community, which will culminate in exciting new murals at the library. Please register your details to attend.  

A multi-disciplinary artist, Sioux will share the creative process she engages in the creation of murals; her inspiration; career history; previous mural projects; her foray into music and video production plus the release of publications.

Sioux will be working out of the Whitford Library meeting room on Mondays and Tuesdays from 9.30am to 4.30pm until 12th July 2022. Please take the opportunity to drop in and meet Sioux and see firsthand her creative process as she works on the mural design.

For more information, please contact the Whitford Library on 9400 4870.

This project was made possible with assistance of DLGSCI and Lotterywest.
