*Come hear Berenice Rarig, an artist based in Perth, Australia
Tuesday, April 1 as she passes through Birmingham!
Berenice has been mentored by Makoto Fujimura and has been involved with the International Arts Movement (IAM) for many years. Someone from IAM wrote of Berenice, “[She] is the epitome of a creative catalyst, and she also has a huge dose of encouragement, which she gives generously to all she meets. In fact, my impression of Berenice is that her attitude is ‘a stranger is a friend I haven’t met yet!’”
Come along to Nancy Carroll’s home to meet and hear from Berenice about her journey into the arts and the international arts conversation.
