The Advocacy of Nundah Art Show

The Nundah Neighbourhood Centre Art Show began in 2015 to raise awareness and funds for the issue of domestic violence. The 2016 Art Show was successful in channeling the funds that they have raised into programs such as art therapy workshops for women who are victims of domestic violence.

In line with their advocacy, this year’s art show will include a charity luncheon organised by the Nundah Neighbourhood Centre and the Hillhouse Burrough McKeown Lawyers, the major sponsor of the art show, to support the programs and workshops. During the luncheon, speakers Rebecca Poulson, Kim Burgess, and Wendy Cumes will share their stories and some important information on domestic violence.

Attending the luncheon will give participants the opportunity to pre-purchase artwork prior to the opening night. Further information can be viewed on the event page.


Art Show: Live

One week before the event, a week-long event was held by Toombul Shopping Centre, the principal sponsor of the art show. Artists shared their talents at the pop-up gallery as a teaser for the Nundah Art Show 2017.
