HAND-IN-HAND

This exhibition is the result of a project, Hand in Hand which brought together young artists of refugee background to explore their sense of place and to share their stories by working with young Aboriginal people, being the cultural descendants of the first peoples of this land, going back 60,000 years.

Art Exhibition previously on at Kerry Packer Civic Gallery in South Australia, Australia.
From Tuesday 13 March 2012 to Monday 23 April 2012

Over the past six months over a hundred young people were directly involved in the project through photographic workshops and cultural exchanges with the Kaurna and Njarrindjeri Aboriginal communities. With cameras in hand young people explored their social and physical space by taking photos of themselves, their friends, their families and events in the community. A highlight was a photo shoot with Senator Kate Lundy, Minister for Multicultural Affairs, during the launch of the project. The exhibition highlights the project in progress, the artists own work and their views on their sense of place.

Presented during the Adelaide Fringe in conjunction with the Migrant Resource Centre of South Australia, School of Art Architecture and Design, UniSA, Port Adelaide Enfield Council and Ngarrindjeri Community.
