"As women, we speak from our heart. In hard times, we gather together in community, we share our stories, and we hold space for others to express emotions.  

We find solstice in creating, in making. Art helps us process our thoughts and emotions, that sometimes we don’t have words for. Art gives us a voice, it helps us, as women, speak our truth and show courage. 

By using the techniques of welding, which is seen as a masculine medium, we find our own ways to combine our feminine elements and show our resilience through this hard and strong medium.

Through our art, we share our stories of courage, bravery and resilience, and spread our message of hope to the community".  Melissa Carey and Colleen Lavender



Also on show is Early touring exhibition by Queensland artist Emma Thorp.
