An exhibition of art, craft, design and stories by vulnerable young Tasmanians is open at the Hobart Town Hall
Titled ‘This Is Me’, the exhibition provides a glimpse into the lives of Tasmania’s most vulnerable 12 to 18 year olds.
The exhibition is an initiative of CatholicCare Tasmania’s Therapeutic Residential Care program, Inspire@HOME. The program provides intensive support and trauma-informed care in a supportive residential setting for young people between the ages of 12 and 18 who are in Out of Home Care under the guardianship and care of ChildSafety.
CatholicCare Tasmania’s Manager of Housing Programs, Andrea Witt joins Dave to talk about the exhibition and the work of The Inspire@HOME program .
The exhibition provides our young people the opportunity to share their story and
creative talents with the community they live in, and allows us, their community, an
opportunity to view the artists’ personal stories through their artwork.
The Inspire@HOME program is funded by the Tasmanian Government’s Department of Communities. The exhibition is supported by the City of Hobart and Medici Italian Pizzeria. Some of the broad range of artworks on display are for sale with funds going directly to the young person.
