To the Third and Fourth Generation

Regeneration: Contemporary Quilted Textiles opens at Manly Art Gallery & Museum next week. Check out their eye-catching information page here. If the invitations I received in the mail are anything to go by, it should be an interesting and stimulating exhibition. I wish I could see it in person.

Society is built on parents and grandparents teaching the children, who then teach their own children and so on through the generations. The nature of our society may be determined by how and what we are teaching our children. Are we teaching them well? Or can we be more proactive in the learning journey of our children in order to (re)build a healthy society?
