February 2024 The Tree of Ecstasy and Unbearable Sadness - Matt Ottley

The Tree of Ecstasy and Unbearable Sadness is a masterful allegorical tale for the 21st century, weaving together the worlds of literature, music, and visual arts in the poignant story of one boy's journey into mental illness.  The narrative unfolds around the metaphor of a tree growing within the boy, whose flower is ecstasy, and who fruit is sadness. This luminous, multi-faceted work is inspired by the experiences of Matt Ottley, who has lived with mental illness all his life, and has been hospitalised on numerous occasions in mental health facilities. Matt's aim is to offer a sensory insight through words, music, and images into the experiences of those who suffer from such debilitating illnesses, particularly psychosis. This exhibition is for children aged +15, and adults.

March 2024 Empowering Women
Kat Lynn

Empowering Women: Visual Conversations Exhibition, an event aiming to amplify the voices of women who have overcome adversity, inspiring others to find their own inner strength.  The exhibition stems from a personal journey of overcoming silencing and finding identity. It captures the stories of women who, despite immense challenges, have emerged stronger. Themes include mental health, LGBTQI+, disability, and youth at risk. The exhibition aims to create a chorus of empowered female voices, and provides a platform for women to share their stories, breaking down barriers for women, inspiring others to believe in their own narrative, fostering community and mentorship opportunities and creating dialogue on vital issues.
