Whittlesea Primary School kids carried lanterns into the exhibition at dusk as part of the official opening of this three day exhibition in the Whittlesea Showgrounds.
In the "walk through" exhibition, there were images of the surrounding bush, a fractured heart, a choice of pathways, presented as a journey for groups and individuals. There were many creative pieces of group or individual works to contemplate over while on the walk.
The occasion was called "Into the Light" and was quite religious from a universal/community perspective. It was very much a collaborative effort from many parts of the local community and supported financially by a number of local and state institutions. This seemed the next right step in the process of healing out of Black Saturday and accepting a forever changed life ahead.
