A Fierce Hope

Adderton Brisbane

24th August - 3rd May

A Fierce Hope is a collaboration of art, passion and social enterprise.

Six contemporary artists were paired with six social enterprises to explore each enterprise’s ethos and the social issues they seek to address.

The result is A Fierce Hope – an exhibition that reveals hope as a compelling force for action: action that is both compassionate and challenges systemic injustice.

The artworks – which were produced over a period of 18 months – reveal the collaboration, commitment and ingenuity of the artists and their paired South East Queensland enterprises in thought-provoking ways.

The social enterprise and artist pairings are:

  • Happy Paws Happy Hearts + Donna Marcus
  • Hummingbird House + Maryann Talia Pau and Ranu James
  • Inala Wangarra + Robert Andrew
  • Outland Denim + Belinda Smith
  • OzHarvest + Elizabeth Willing
  • White Wreath Association + Dan Elborne

A Fierce Hope reveals hope as a compelling force for action: action that is both compassionate and challenges systemic injustice.

These six innovative and passionate initiatives, galvanised by hope, are working to make a difference: to inform; to invite community engagement; and to empower people to find their voice for advocacy in the community, nation and beyond.

Leave the exhibition fiercely inspired to take your own small steps towards a more just and tolerant society.
