"Crafting Cultural Connections" is an art initiative in the city of Marion where residents have been attending traditional craft workshops across various community facilities in Marion to learn new artistic skills based on a variety of cultural practices. This exhibition showcases the work of facilitators and examples of work made by participants in the workshops. This includes: Bangladeshi quilt embroidery; Eritrean basketry; Sudanese beading, and; Iranian embroidery. It was launched on March 18 to coincide with the Harmony Week celebrations. The Traditional Craft Skills Workshop program is managed by Guildhouse and supported by the South Australian Government through Multicultural SA.





"Technology frightens me to death. It’s designed by engineers to impress other engineers. And they always come with instruction booklets that are written by engineers for other engineers — which is why almost no technology ever works. –John Cleese



. "The stubborn of a captive mentality can be clearly seen in the formulation of national development plans in most developing nations where the fundamental meaning and criteria of knowledge and development, modernization and reform, progress and change, happiness, tolerance, pluralism and their respective antonyms - such as under-development and corruption - are all derived from Western frameworks. Sometimes the strangest phenomenon surfaces - such as when the methodology of understanding and teaching indigenous religions is regarded as being uncritical and less objective if it does not utilize the methods developed by Western scholars in the understanding and teaching Western religions and religious texts."
