Exhibition opening

 

Last night Friends of Millers Point Patron Eva Cox opened The Point is… exhibition at 107 Projects in Redfern, speaking on the importance of community and the ties that bind us together, emphasising people are social and connected to one another.

Introducing people at the exhibition were Paddi, Cara and Kelli.

Our local community Choir Rocks, led by Joanna Weinberg, performed some moving songs. It was announced that Choir Rocks is hoping soon to be based at the Harry Jensen Centre in Millers Point and welcoming more local residents to sing with the choir.

Jacinta Tobin welcomed the audience to country and through song likened the Millers Point campaign and the eviction of the community to the dispossession of Australia’s Indigenous People.

Alex Greenwich spoke about how he was inspired by the the campaign to save the Millers Point community, and the strength and conviction of the residents and their supporters.

Barney and Chris arrived and brought some of the flavour of Millers Point residents to the exhibition, adding their stall, handouts and information sheets to the walls amongst the exhibition.

The Point is… continues until Sunday 11 October at 107 Projects.

    Fantastic idea guys! Let’s hope Baird et al take note of your convictions and your arguments about community and act accordingly. I have my fingers and toes crossed for you!

        The pitfalls of predictive text… but I like the idea of commuters standing up for Millers Point.
