Exhibited at Greenhill Galleries, Adelaide. As part of International Year of the Family. (UN designate) I went to an Aboriginal community to talk to them about their aspirations for the future for their communities. I found grandmothers hoping for their children and their grandchildren's future educational opportunities. I also found proud elders hoping for a sense of belonging for land and kin.
