Bowral: Exhibition: Stories about Hope

26 May 2017 - 28 May 2017

Stories about Hope Exhibition
to be held over the weekend of 26th to 28th May
at the Old Town Hall Bowral (in front of the Henrietta Rose Room).

Stories about Hope Exhibition

Stories about Hope is a photographic exhibition and video presenting the true stories of people who have been refugees and have rebuilt their lives in Australia. It celebrates human dignity, resilience, survival and contribution. The project is especially timely in the current rhetoric about people seeking asylum in Australia. It aims not only to challenge the negative stereotypes but to give inspiration and hope to everyone.

You are invited to see the exhibition and video on the weekend of 26th to 28th May at the Old Town Hall Bowral. The exhibition will be launched on Friday 26th May at 6pm with a showing of the video, a panel discussion and conversation about the issues raised. Please put it in your diary as it should be a very worthwhile event. We will need some help with refreshments for the launch and people who are willing to go on a roster of attendants during the opening hours 10 – 4pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Opening night on Friday will be a little fancy and we will need to confirm numbers so please contact Francine Bartlett on

We plan to have some of those involved, including the artist Renee Dixson, participate in a discussion at a showing of the video. More details can be found at:  https://www.facebook.com/NKPhotographySydney/
