Wiluna 23-24 May 2018

The From Another View project team arrived in Wiluna on 23 May 2018 after an overnight stop in Meekatharra. The load on the ute still intact, the team set about unloading and setting up the pop-up exhibition at the old hospital near the Tjukurba Art Gallery.

The pop-up exhibition opened on 24 May with an afternoon barbecue. It was a relaxed affair with people from the Wiluna community attending throughout the afternoon.
