Creative conversations: Kaz Cooke

Meet in front foyer
Main entry, Swanston St
Has wheelchair access

Join 2013 Creative Fellow Kaz Cooke as she shares her discoveries from the Library's Realia collection, spanning three centuries of fashion and accoutrements.

From royal tiaras to footy jumpers, Kaz explores what people wear to show who they are, what they support and where they belong. Her talk will be followed by a viewing of her Raiment & regalia display in The Changing face of Victoria exhibition.

This talk is part of Creative conversations, an intimate, behind-the-scenes lecture series that features artists and writers from the Library’s Fellowship Program.
