Depot Artspace

A fundraising exhibition from the newly-formed group Art for Change, which intends to raise awareness of the plight of international refugees, and assists in raising funds for the refugee resettlement programmes in Auckland.

Art for Change is run by visual artists Fiona Barrett, Belinda King, Gaël Rowntree, Mary Ann Manchego and Brenda Liddiard, who formed the group after discovering that they all shared deep concerns over the current international refugee crisis.

The intention of Art for Change is to create artworks that reflect their concerns and Where Shall We Call Home? Will feature a number of the group’s works, along with works by other artists and will also include a montage wall of donated 10”x 10” works from various artists which also focus on aspects of the refugee experience. This powerful exhibition features over 50 artists, coming together at the Depot Artspace.

A number of events will coincide with the exhibition to assist their fundraising efforts, and Amnesty International’s North Shore group will be offering a series of activities. As part of World Refugee Day on Tuesday 20 June, there will be an evening of refugee stories and a performance in the gallery.

All funds raised will be given to two amazing local groups who help refugees: the New Zealand Red Cross Refugee Programme in Auckland, and the Auckland Refugee Family Trust (ARFT), who work toward reunifying refugees with their families in New Zealand.

Exhibition Opening: Saturday 17 June, 2 - 3:30pm
