Boundless Plains: Creative Conversations

I am privileged to be part of this significant multi-disciplinary show kicking off tomorrow night @ Annandale Creative Arts Centre

To be part of such a great initiative is humbling and empowering at the same time – using my God given gifts to try and make the world a better place for peoples whom are suffering is one of the highest callings.

Over 30 artists, of different disciplines, have joined the Creative Conversation and are creating new works to reflect on current issues facing asylum seekers in Australia. These works will culminate in an exhibition opening and performance evening, with an invitation to explore the issues from different perspectives. Joining the voices of the artists, will be a panel of speakers, bringing to the conversation experience in working with asylum seekers on the ground, as well as on their behalf in policy and activism.
