Gipfelkonferenz der Kinder (Summit Conference of Children) Nürnberg, Germany 2019
Children from around 20 countries surrendered their plastic toy weapons to build a large 'Peace Sculpture' in the middle of the Reichsparteitagsgelände in Nürnberg/Germany. This historical building was significant during the WWII, where Hitler and his Generals planned their horrific crimes agains humanity.
In October 2019 it became a symbol of hope and peace for all children around the world.
'Priceless' is an international art installation where the community actively participates for just one day. The project started back in Germany during the Financial Crisis in 2008. People are asked to write down what is priceless to them on a large dinner table entirely wrapped in paper. The answers are public and can be read by anyone who walks past. This is a great way to share and learn about emotional thoughts, hopes and dreams as well as different values towards life of other members of the community.
Now also touring in Australia the project has taken on another life of its own with people writing down what priceless really means in their own lives.
Internal Organ 2019
This art installation was initiated by Blue Mountains Tool Library and Winter Magic Festival.
'Internal Organ' looks at the homeless members of our community in the Blue Mountains. Homelessness is not a choice, on any given night in Australia 116,427 Australians are homeless. 27,680 of these are young people aged 12-24 years.
The art installation focuses on the many displaced people, represented by a piece of clothing, that are in need of a safe and warm shelter. The large paste up is a photograph of a young homeless man, who lives in our community, pasted onto sheet banners to stop the dehumanisation of these people.
Wherever possible it is important to help those who find themselves experiencing homeless to establish support networks within the local community, and to put down roots.
