This project enables Aboriginal people affected by kidney disease to paint their stories of hope for the future in order to raise national awareness of the severe impact which kidney disease is causing among so many Indigenous communities. The project is also providing a forum for discussion within Indigenous communities about the health problems which they are facing and issues around transplantation.
Each painting represents one year in the life expectancy gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. The artworks will be displayed as a Circle of hope and is a joint project between Malpa and Transplant Australia. The touring exhibition includes Federal Parliament, with the works eventually being auctioned to raise funds for programs in Central Australia addressing Aboriginal health issues.
