2019 exhibition at Depot artspace

Nourishing the
Roots Of Empathy

 
An art exhibition towards a non-violent Aotearoa/NZ
VENUE: Depot Artspace, 28 Clarence Street,
Devonport, Auckland
CLOSES: 4pm, 9th October 2019
THEME: Empathy, compassion and non violence

Why is THIS EXHIBITION important?

Art for Change is holding an art exhibition to support the charity Roots of Empathy, whose founder, Canadian Mary Gordon, will visit Auckland later this month to open the exhibition.
With so many stories in the media about family violence, abuse and bullying, we often feel powerless to bring about change. Empathy helps dissolve the borders that separate people, that allow one group to deem another group or individual to be less human. Empathy helps us to understand difference and recognise that our emotions are universal – that we’re all connected.
Two years ago, the Art for Change collective ran a highly successful art exhibition raising money to support refugees in Aotearoa. This year we have chosen to support the not-for-profit Roots of Empathy, whose work is particularly import in the wake of the Christchurch mosque tragedy.
Don't miss this unique exhibition which is on until 9th October. Take home a beautiful piece of art and contribute much needed funds to support the Roots of Empathy programme in New Zealand.
