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.
