Having a ‘cuppa’ tea is a common Aboriginal way of catching up and sharing among family and community. When we meet up with mob, whether it’s visiting each other’s homes or out in community, we greet each other, we check in, we ask ‘how is the family?’ and so on over a cuppa tea.
‘Hey Sis/Bruz, Aunt/Unc/Mum/Dad/Nan/Pop/Cuz… how ya goin?’ djwanna cuppa tea? I’ll put the kettle on…’
Brought together to collaborate over their shared interest in tea, artists Vicki Couzens and Katie West invite you to contemplate the stories entwined in this beverage, contribute to an evolving installation, and of course, enjoy a cup of tea.
