Voiceless Journeys Street Art Exhibition & Live Performance

WHEN: Fri, 30 August 2013, 09:00am - 06:00pm

WHERE: Australian Catholic University (ACU), St Mary of the Cross Square, (approx Brunswick Street & Victoria Parade Junction), Fitzroy 3065, Melbourne (latitude 37° 48’ 29.60" S; longitude 144° 58’ 42.51" E )

We are working in partnership with the Australian Catholic University (ACU) to set up the biggest Voiceless Journeys street art exhibition so far on Friday, 30 August 2013.

Voiceless Journeys is an art project that aims to celebrate the cultural diversity and raise awareness about the journey, struggle, survival and achievements of people from diverse backgrounds. The focus was on people who had left their countries as a result of internal problems or conflicts to make their life in Australia; people who positively shape our communities. Voiceless Journeys is an attempt to build a sense of community with greater understanding of each other through the medium of art.

These human stories spoken through the silence of 101 evocative black and white photographic portraits are also enlarged and exhibited around the streets of Melbourne.

The exhibition at ACU covers the length of approximately 90metres along Victoria Parade and Brunswick Street, Fitzroy, Melbourne.
