“I was commissioned to produce a painting to interpret services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. There's a campfire right in the heart of the painting, with eight people sitting around it. That represents the Aboriginal community. The colours of the people represent their relationship to themselves or others or with mental health issues or disabilities, and how as a community we need to be able to tackle it.”
“It’s very important to me to have my own place because it gives me a sense of freedom and privacy. Home means a place where you belong.”
Bill and Tracy’s story
“I came out from being unconscious on my 18th birthday. The doc told me I broke my neck in two places and I'd never walk again. When he said it, it didn't sink in. I never thought I'd end up in a wheelchair, but I guess I was lucky to even survive.”
