Stories about Hope: Exhibition
Fri. 9 December 2016, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm AEDT
'Stories about Hope' is an exhibition project showcasing the work of artist Renee Dixson. The exhibition explores ideas of human dignity and strength in people from refugee backgrounds.
Renee does this through her sensitive and connected, social documentary style, multimedia approach to artmaking which allows the viewer to delve deeper into an understanding of the resilience and hope that lies within her subjects.
We invite you to celebrate this resilience, strength, and survival with us at the opening night launch.
