I Want My Mum To Come

Collaborating with good friend Jackie Benney, this is an exhibition focussing on social justice issues, particularly the asylum seeker dilemma. The exhibition titled ‘I Want My Mum To Come’ has been inspired by the many and varied stories encountered through meeting many asylum seekers, refugees and people who were in detention over the last few years. We would very much like to extend a warm welcome to you, and your friends and family, to the exhibition.

 The exhibition is at the McGlade Gallery, ACU Strathfield, Sydney, with the opening on Wednesday the 21st of August at 6.00pm.

I am very motivated to show the human side of people involved. This has been largely stripped away by the cheap clichés and slogans of the mass media and politicians for their own agendas. We are trying to start to balance that out.

If you would be so kind pass it on to as many as possible, put this on your website/newsletters, and of course come and be part of the conversation, it would be most appreciated.
