Passage: Into the Heart of Resilience, exhibition by humanitarian artist Lorissa Manners, is a collection of contemporary portraits and keepsakes that represent the journey of displacement of six refugee women, including ‘children of Nauru’ and stories from the stolen generation. Her works explore contemporary social issues and speak both on a global and local level to promote justice, hope and freedom. They are representative of all women who have experienced trauma and displacement in their lives and are an expression of our shared values of women’s empowerment, equality and inclusion.
Lorissa Manners, a humanitarian visual storyteller uses her paintbrush to inspire hope and justice by passing on significant stories that have shaped our collective contemporary landscape. She has lived internationally and worked for humanitarian organisations to do both artwork and International and Community Development work. Working on large scale projects and murals her works are the passing on of our stories through a vivid expression of movement and colour.
