Words for Change installation at Boronia Library

Anna has worked with local schools, community groups and craft groups to develop the content and textiles for the installation in Boronia Library. The repetition of local voices - male, female, young, old, and inter generational - expressed in text, framed in a positive, colourful, immersive manner sends powerful messages to everyone who enters Boronia Library or one of the many other spaces in which this work will be exhibited.
