The participants in the No Fixed Address exhibition all have stories that are currently being compiled into a book due for publication in July 2017.
The women who created books in this project were all victims of domestic violence. Some wrote the stories of their past some wrote stories of their hopes for the future. Being heard, being valued, being supported regardless of the story was the key.
Storytelling takes on a whole new dimension when creating mini mees. This group of non sculptors created amazing mini mees.
Ten children with a wide range of disabilities showed their abilities as they created books in a school holiday workshop. The process was challenging and engaging and the results speak for themselves.
Fabulous books were created by the participants and their carers. A book launch was held where participants were celebrated and many tears of pride and joy shed.
