What could a Melbourne-centric disaster shelter look like? How could it be built? What is important for comfort and security? Join Mittul Vahanvati, architectural designer and researcher on disaster housing, along with six intercultural master weavers from different Indigenous backgrounds to explore ideas, techniques and materials for converting Raft into a series of disaster shelters for Refuge 2020.

This workshop is part of Refuge 2019: Displacement – a five-year project where art meets climate emergency.
