Burrinja Arties with the direction of Lynette Forrest
Upwey, VIC, Australia
“This is the Burrinja Arties group with our Global Art Project. David Wayne Swift of Swift photography turned us into the world. We reused some of our exchange art and put their quotes about Peace on our globe in our world exhibition. We made two pieces of global art, one to send and one to exhibit in our exhibition. This scratch art piece was sent to Tucson, Arizona, USA.
“Our message: Every time we stop to do art we bring a little Peace to our world.
“This group of adults from the ages of 25 to 70's, live in residential care. They all live with acquired brain injuries and have very challenging circumstances to cope with what Life has thrown them. The highlight of their week is being picked up by a volunteer driver and taken to the local Community Arts Centre, to participate in a morning arts program.”
