Discover the untold stories of hope in Australia's refugee community in their words.
‘Stories about Hope’ explores the human dignity, identity, and strength in people from refugee backgrounds through photography and short films.
After three successful exhibitions in NSW and Victoria, we invite you to join us at the Museum of the Riverina for the opening night on June 20 (5:00pm for 5:30pm start).
This exhibition celebrates the courage and resilience of people who have undertaken diverse journeys to Australia throughout different points in history, and through their stories, prove that your past does not define you and can give you strength to move forward with confidence.
Stories about Hope are created and produced by Renee Dixson, the multidisciplinary artist from a refugee background.
The opening night will feature a talk by Renee Dixson, the artist and producer and Tina Dixson, one of the project participants.
This is a free event.
Stories About Hope has an associated book, that will be available for purchase at the exhibition. Profit from books sales will be donated to organisations working with people seeking asylum.
