Fire and Flavour

A collection of photographs recording the journey photographer Tony Lewis and writer Nigel Hopkins made to Thailand with chef Nu Suandokmai, to Nu’s family farm where he was taught to cook by his mother and older sister Lek.

SA Refugee Week 2019 Youth Poster Awards Exhibition
3-28 June

In this exhibition of posters we see students taking a leadership role in empathising with, offering support and advocating for, the world’s most vulnerable, and especially refugees displaced across the world, those coming to our shores and those presently within Australia’s guardianship. Where some might find it more convenient to either ignore or depreciate the plight of people fleeing their homelands and desperate for sanctuary, these students have taken on the mantle of ethical warriors, standing up for the weakened and willing to do what is needed to bring the social and economic justice we, as a country, advanced all those years ago.

Art by Prisoners
1-30 August

Art is a constructive activity through which to express and manage these emotions, unearth new talents and strengths, help reconnect with lost identities and find new ones, creating a vision and hope for a more positive future. Art by Prisoners comprises artwork created by people incarcerated in South Australia’s adult prisons. The works offer glimpses into the pain, isolation, and regret often experienced as a result of crime and punishment.
