Belonging is an interactive community exhibition from young people of migrant and refugee backgrounds that explores and celebrates identity and culture through visual and narrative expression.
Curated by Gabby Loo – an active comics artist of Shan (Myanmar) and Chinese ethnicity who is studying Fine Arts at the University of Western Australia – this dynamic exhibition will feature diverse and personal expressions of the self. Proudly supported by the Office of Multicultural Interests and North Metropolitan TAFE.
All workshops are free for young people aged 12 - 26 but we strongly encourage participants to book online in advance!
