ARTWORK by Rosebud Secondary College students will carry a heart-felt plea when it is displayed as part of the street art event: Voices To Be Heard at the Rye fairground after Christmas.
It aims to focus community attention on youth suicide. The works will go on show at the Wittingslow Carnival with the support of the Sorrento Activity Centre and Studio Sorrento. Money raised from the sale of the paintings and donations will go towards the college’s Youth Wellness Pavilion.
The street art concept was chosen because it provides a platform for “freedom of creative expression in a modern form”, organiser Pat Watt said.
Prizes will go to the best paintings – including a first prize of $1000.
