Half of Australia’s refugees are under the age of 15. Many are placed in schools within 48 hours of their arrival to Australia without sufficient command of the English language. On Thursday 17 February, the ALNF will launch Subtext: Art for Literacy – a two week long text-based art exhibition at CarriageWorks to raise funds for our acclaimed refugee literacy program, RAS.
The exhibition will explore the power of language and self-expression through the perspective of young migrants in Australia with an impressive 25m long canvas by political artist, Locust Jones and 21 teenage students from our RAS program at Lurnea High School. This collaboration was initiated and supported by Art & Australia. The launch event will include a performance piece by Matthew Peet (aka Mistery), one of Australia’s most renowned graffiti artists.
The exhibition, supported by CarriageWorks, will showcase artworks by Jon Campbell, Simryn Gill, Michael Lindeman, Noel McKenna, Nell, Will Coles, Agatha Gothe-Snape, Astra Howard, Rob McHaffie, Michelle Nikou, Tom Polo, Charlie Sofo, Arlene Textaqueen, Jake Walker and John Warwicker. Artworks will be available for sale with proceeds donated to ALNF.
CarriageWorks, 245 Wilson St, Sydney
