Stories about Hope

June 20, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - June 25, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Free

“Stories about Hope”, a social art exhibition which explores the human dignity and strength in people from refugee backgrounds through photography and short films produced by Renee Dixson and curated by Amber Hearn.

The stories represented in the exhibition celebrate the courage and resilience of people who have undertaken diverse journeys to Australia throughout different points in history. From Holocaust survivors to our most recent young arrivals, the stories prove that your past does not define you, but can give you more strength to move forward with confidence.

The exhibition explores what it means to be of a refugee background, questions of identity and belonging. It shines an important light on the voices, perspectives and experiences erased from public conversation.

Stories About Hope has an associated book by Elias Kelleher, which will be available for purchase at the exhibition. All proceeds from this event will go towards helping Road to Refuge’s work in building a new conversation which supports and values the lived experience and dignity of people seeking asylum.

Launch 20 June 6-9pm, exhibition runs 11am-5pm
