The Future Is Now

3 July 2024 - 26 July 2024

'The best way to predict your future is to create it'
Peter Drucker, Management Consultant & Educator.

The Future Is Now exhibition reflects on the interconnected nature of the past, present, and future, highlighting the integral role that art can play in fostering positive change. Presenting a diverse range of possible visions for the coming decade, this body of work from Neami artists encourages reflection on the ever-changing landscape. Whether it’s the swift progress of science, the integration of Artificial Intelligence, or the persistent challenge of the climate emergency, the artwork prompts contemplation about the impact these developments will have on our aspirations.

This exhibition features artworks by local emerging artists who attend the Visual Art Programs run by Neami National, a community mental health service supporting people to achieve mental and physical wellbeing, and pursue a life based on their strengths, values and goals as they engage in their individual recovery.

Artworks will be available for purchase.
