I am pleased to be participating in a 3-month virtual exhibition to benefit Switchboard Victoria. The exhibition entitled “series 01 // love” is in response to the Marriage Equality debate in Australia and invites artists to submit works on the theme of love. Artworks will comprise a set of postcards to be sold, with all proceeds going to Switchboard Victoria, an information and crisis counselling service for the LGBTIQ community who have seen a 25% rise in calls since the announcement of the postal vote.
The aim of this project is two-fold, i) to promote sharing of positive images in light of the hate messages and debate going on at present, and ii) to raise funds for Switchboard Victoria. Images are released weekly via http://www.facebook.com/cartooningwithpride, pre-order your set of postcards today!
