Journey of Hope with Sister Bridgid Arthur

Wyndham Interfaith Network will highlight the importance of belief for those who are displaced. It will host a 25 piece art display by asylum seekers on loan from Baptcare. All of the works in the Journeys of Hope exhibition use colour to express emotion, feeling and memories that have their roots in the challenge of displacement and trauma. The Wyndham municipality currently hosts more than 200 asylum seekers as they connect with others and move on with their lives. The art installation will be on display until the 14th of Feb

Speaker: Sister Bridgid Arthur from the Brigidine Asylum Seekers Project. The project works with, and for, people seeking asylum both in detention and in the community. Underpinning this work are the core principles of universal human rights and Australia’s responsibilities to those seeking asylum, especially the need for just and accessible procedures and structures. She supports those in detention at Christmas Island and has visited the detention facility a number of times.
