HAT Australia took place beween 2002 and 2003 when 17 jewellers exchanged between England and Australia. We've archived the site, which shows examples of artists' work as well as other aspects of the project such as CHAT week and the HAT Exhibition. To see the archived site, please CLICK HERE Unlike the current HAT site, the Australia/UK site did not allow artists to upload their own data. All the information was collected and added through myself as documentation artist and web master.

New WEB developments
Early developments in the WEB meant that people could read ...but not contribute themselves to web sites. New tools such as those used on the current HAT site are now making it possible for the WEB to function as it was originally conceived as being 'interactive' through blogs, and uploads from the user end. The HAT Project operates accross many different countries on a global level, and these new web tools are a key component to establishing a 'global' community and archive.
