On the road
During 2012 and 2013 an exhibition of works from the Growing Up with Cancer project toured Australia, spending time at eight venues including hospitals, community, and art and education spaces. Twenty-two self-portraits are represented in the exhibition, including one suite of music. People involved in the project came together to celebrate the amazing art works at events at Riverside Theatres Parramatta, Federation Square, Melbourne, Downing Centre, Sydney and Wallsend Library, Newcastle. The works are now on permanent loan to the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre art collection. On this page you can look at photos of the exhibitions on tour and watch speeches from some of the artists, researchers and partners involved in the project.
