Adelaide Fringe Festival 2019
Poets from around the world joined hands and threads to unite in the beauty of creation. Each participant was invited to compose and stitch text of either a first, middle or closing line; nobody knew what anybody else created. India Flint curates an international poetry and textiles exhibition to celebrate the Adelaide Fringe Festival 2019 at FabriK, Arts & Heritage, Lobethal.
