There are, on average 2 suicides per month in the East Kimberley’s.
(Wayne Bergmann, Executive Director, Kimberley Land Council)

The Colours of Life art exhibition is hoping to lower this statistic and give kids of the East Kimberley the chance to live productive, positive, and abundant lives by donating 35%* of sales to Save the Children’s Youth at Risk Project.

The Youth at Risk Project works with young people from indigenous communities of the East Kimberley. The project aims to increase young people’s ability to make positive choices about their lives through a range of challenging and educational activities which simultaneously establish pathways for them to access education or employment opportunities.

Colours of Life will be opened by Professor Fiona Stanley AC, Director, Telethon Institute for Child Health Research and will be held at the Moores Building, 46 Henry Street, Fremantle. Opening Night Friday 25 July 2008. The Moores Building, thanks to the City of Fremantle, has donated the gallery space for the entire exhibition which runs until 3 August 2008.

Colours of Life is the lead up exhibition to the East Kimberley Arts Workshop Project and Art Exhibition 2009, which will launch the 90th Anniversary of Save the Children. The Arts Workshop Project’s aim is to give youth at risk in the region an outlet for self expression and the opportunity to experience the possibility of life as an artist. It will involve Eva Varga and another prominent Artist going to the East Kimberley’s and working with Wyndham’s and Kununurra’s Aboriginal youth on a variety of art works. These works will be brought to Perth and exhibited alongside prominent West Australian Artists’ works. Part proceeds of the Exhibition will return to the communities. We are aiming to bring the youths involved to Perth for Opening night.

* Any un-sponsored opening night costs will need to be recouped first.


We would like to acknowledge the following companies for their generous support for Colours of Life.
