Recrafting Stories: A Decolonial Pursuit
"Recrafting Stories: A Decolonial Pursuit" is an exhibition and event series organised by Dia Guild in collaboration with Small Shifting Space. This project explores decolonialism in the context of craft (be it artisanship, music, or literature), while also engaging with the wider themes of storytelling and identity. Decolonialism is a way to change existing narratives and interrogate power structures that were largely shaped by the global West and the legacy of colonisation.
How did we get here? Where are we now? Where are we going? With these questions, Dia Guild hopes to interrogate power structures largely shaped by the West, and spawn new narratives tied to roots and identities in Southeast Asia.
4 - 10 October, 2021

This immersive exhibition is part of London Craft Week 2021 and will be held at the brand new Pan Pacific London, the prestigious hospitality group’s first property in Europe.
In the last year, their specially curated catalogue of jewellery, ceramics, minaudières and other lifestyle products has quickly become a beloved shopping destination as well as a resource for discerning collectors to understand how people of the region are celebrating and modernising heritage craftsmanship.
