This exhibition showcases selected posters from several hundred submitted by students from across the state of South Australia in primary, secondary and tertiary educational institutions. The artwork is a response to themes which are critical in the acceptance and settlement of new arrivals to Australia.

Those themes include multiculturalism, cultural diversity, anti-racism and the welcoming of refugees into Australia as well as how refugees become part of, and contribute towards, the Australian “family”. Understanding that visual communication has a strong role to play in relaying social messages that can also help build a more resilient and connected community while celebrating our rich cultural diversity.
