We Bleed the Same Exhibition

Thursday 10 March 2022

The Freilich Project is very proud to support We Bleed the Same, an exhibition that explores racism and diversity in Australia through the lens of immigrants, refugees, First Nations peoples, and many others.

Thirty-seven people from diverse backgrounds are featured in a series of stunning portraits taken by Tim Bauer, one of Australia’s pre-eminent portrait photographers. The exhibition also includes a documentary by journalist and film-maker Liz Deep-Jones, which shares the unique stories of cultural difference, the experiences of racism, and in some cases even fleeing war to arrive in Australia.

The aim of the exhibition is to create a greater understanding of our differences in order to live in a more inclusive society. The exhibition includes installations, a documentary, and 35 photographic portraits. You can check out a preview of the exhibition here in a recent article published in the Sydney Morning Herald Good Weekend magazine. 

The exhibition launched 29 March 2022 and runs for six months in the foyer of the RSSS Building. Check out more on the launch night and send us your feedback by signing our digital guest book here or by commenting on social media and using #WeBleedtheSame.

Along with the exhibition itself, we are running a series of events and lectures across the six months that tie into the themes of We Bleed the Same. Check back here regularly for updates and new details and click the links below for more information.
