Opening of We Bleed the Same at Woollahra Library

Sunday 18 June 2023

We were pleased to support the recent We Bleed the Same Exhibition opening at Woollahra Council Library, in North Sydney. 

Liz Deep-Jones, show curator and Freilich Fellow in Arts/Media and Activism, launched the show with author, campaigner and advocate for the Voice to Parliament, Thomas Mayo. Mayo is one of the dozens of people features in the exhibition, each with their own stories of racism. A Zenadth Kes (Torres Strait Islander) man born and raised on Larrakia Country (Darwin), Mayo is a signatory of the Uluru Statement from the Heart. The We Bleed the Same exhibition photos were all taken by internationally-renowned portrait photographer Tim Bauer.

There was a great crowd in attandance as Mayo discussed the upcoming refurendum on the Voice to Parliament.

The exhibition is running from 10 June until 25 June and includes events with a number of people included in the exhibition, including First Nations Elder Uncle Widdy, survivor of the Stolen Generations, and Ernie Freelander, survivor of the Holocaust. For more information, check out the website.
