This exhibition is proudly developed in the Scenic Rim by Centacare. 

Join clients and families to celebrate this exhibition during the Launch and Meet the Artists event on Saturday 24 July 2021 at 10.30am. Artists Therese Flynn-Clarke and Sally Mackinnon will also give artists talks and exhibition tours during the event. This is a COVID-safe event - RSVP essential.

Scenic Seniors: Life Stories showcases the lives of local seniors through written stories, photographs, interviews and recordings. The process of documenting these life stories benefits all generations - writing one's story boosts self-esteem, reduces stress and anxiety and is a powerful medicine for all who are involved in the process, promoting resilience and recovery.  

The act of sharing one's personal experience shows us all we are not alone and during tough times and that we are stronger together.

These life stories also provide a vision of what recovery looks like and how we can draw on past experiences to provide pathways out.

Also on show is Hanging by a Thread exhibition by Therese Flynn-Clarke and Sally MacKinnon.
