Sonder aims to share the art and stories of artists with lived experience of disadvantage, offering the broader community the unique opportunity to engage directly with the artists and gain insight into their work and life journey.
100 Families WA Project Manager Alex Hughes said the event was an opportunity to improve organic awareness of entrenched disadvantage through conversations and storytelling.
“This project has been a labour of love for the 100 Families WA Lived Experience Advisory Group who wanted to create an opportunity for people with lived experience of disadvantage to be front and centre,” Mr Hughes said.
“Working closely with uneARThed and Self Made Indigenous Corporation we’ve had an incredible selection of artworks submitted from more than 50 artists with a lived experience of disadvantage, which is really an incredible outcome.
“Sonder is more than an exhibition; it’s about giving the artists a platform to tell their story in their own way, and enabling the community to forge a connection with a cohort of people that might otherwise find it difficult to have a voice.”
