SA Refugee Week 2018 Youth Poster Awards Exhibition

MONDAY 18 June - Tuesday 10 July 2018


 

Kerry Packer Civic Gallery Exhibition

Exhibition dates: MONDAY 18 JUNE - TUESDAY 10 JULY 2018


This exhibition is part of a growing visual dialogue describing multiculturalism, anti-racism and human rights, and celebrating cultural diversity. Students from primary to tertiary level have created posters that celebrate the UN International Refugee Convention by communicating how refugees are welcomed, become part of, and contribute to the Australian "family".

In this exhibition of posters selected from primary and secondary schools, across both public and private systems, as well as from the three major tertiary institutions, we see current 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 ethicalwarriors, 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.
