Dress The West Call to Action

Dress the West is a project created from the partnerships involved with Red Ridge Interior Queensland to promote mental health and the cultures of our regional towns. Blackall-Tambo, Longreach, Winton and Barcaldine are invited to incorporate the stories or themes they feel are important into a creative wearable art piece, guided by fashion designer Claudia Williams.
