Flora & Fauna
Every year we create a theme for artists to work to and in 2020 we planned for Flora and Fauna.
Never could we have imagined the extraordinary times we have experienced already in 2020.
The deaths by Domestic Violence is heart wrenching and the destruction of our floral and fauna has been distressing. I hope you will join me in this very special 2020 Apron Project.

2019 ROAD SHOW
Did you see these beautiful aprons when they passed through town?
More than 80 aprons created by artists from all over the world travelled to towns across New South Wales in an effort to start conversations about domestic violence.
Together we can take down the invisible barriers, rebuild hearts and homes simply by listening.

First comes the grief, then comes the rising.

I was a victim but now I am strong. Once you walk away you discover a life that has been waiting for you.
