Hospital and Cornucopia Community Art Group.

Original artworks by Simon Champ, Ruth Sariban, Paulina Nikolzew, James Akhurst and Tim O’Loughlin will be exhibited as flags installed around Top Ryde from 23 October to 11 November 2019. Each artwork highlights the unique and personal story of recovery experienced by the artist. Making art can be a powerful way to express ourselves, share our stories and find points of commonality and connection. Engaging with art allows us to better understand the varied lives and experiences of the people that make up our community.
