Children reflecting on identity and faith
Led by artist Anna Hickey-Moody, the Interfaith Childhoods project works with schools, communities and religious organisations to collect and share stories of everyday life told by both secular people and those of faith in Australia and the United Kingdom.
Many migrants and refugees start a new life with very little other than their faith. Stories and experiences of ‘what really matters’ are collected in the lives of children and adult community members living in some of the most disadvantaged areas of the United Kingdom, and across Australia.
This exhibition presents stories of diaspora, belonging and visions of the future from Adelaide children, many of whom are first-generation migrants and refugees, shared through film, animation, art and media. The children’s art explores visible and invisible identity, while their animations will take you on a journey through their family history and ask the question of ‘what really matters?’. Come and share the children’s migration stories, build your own refuge filled with precious things or book in for the animation workshop and tell your own identity story.
