Wayapawarr Watnanda Marangee is a group of First Nations Weavers led by Gunditjmara artist & master weaver Bronwyn Razem and creative producer Katja Nedoluha who put together an Arts Response to the COVID-19 situation of self-isolation/lockdown and the associated ramifications such as insecurity, anxiety, feelings of disconnection, etc. etc.

With the help and expertise of Gunditjmara Keeray Woorrong artist & language expert Vicki Couzens, the translation for the project was established.

It was important to showcase the diversity in Australian Indigenous weaving so a group of weavers from different backgrounds were invited to join.
