Artistic expression helping to break the cycle of homelessness

Mayor of Hume City, Councillor Carly Moore encouraged the community to experience the ‘Foyer the Place’ exhibition from Thursday 24 October.

“This exhibition showcases works created by students living in the Broadmeadows, Glen Waverley and Shepparton Education First Youth Foyers, a vital service that helps young people break the cycle of homelessness by supporting them to lead independent and fulfilling lives,” Cr Moore said.

“The 2019 Foyer Art Exhibition is just one of many education and development pathways offered to the young people living at the Education First Youth Foyer.

The ‘Foyer the Place’ exhibition presents themes that are highly personal, varying from the decorative to the symbolic, the humorous to the profound.

Each work offers visitors a view and insight into the experiences of young people in our community, from many cultures and diverse backgrounds, who are developing independence and expressing their experiences creatively.   

Cr Moore said the exhibition includes art work that was made collaboratively in Foyer art workshops along with pieces that were produced independently or as part of the student’s course work.

“The Brotherhood of St Laurence, Education First Program is co-located with TAFE and supported by the Victorian Government and is working to provide young people facing homelessness with a positive, educational path to adulthood 

“Hume City Council is privileged to host ‘Foyer the Place’ at Gallery - HGLC Broadmeadows from late October through to mid-December.”
