ARTISTS: JESSIE DEANE AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS
Over 6 months members of the community were mentored by renowned local artist, Jessie Deane, to each create a single needlepoint artwork.
The individual pieces have been joined together to form a large humanity symbol, marking the beginning of Victoria University’s 16 Days of Activism campaign.
Proudly sponsored by Victoria University’s Respect and Responsibility team.
