During Midsumma Festival, come participate in the latest iteration of 'Every Word We Write Is Panacea', the third installation of the collaborative writing work by artist Matto Lucas at the Altona Civic Centre, in Altona.

Write a short, anonymous, positive affirmation to either their past self or a nameless family member or friend who belongs to the LGBTQIA+ community, by pegging a short letter onto an installed line at the Altona Civic Centre. The messages of positivity, support and affirmation will join the many generated letters and stories from the previous iterations of the project and continue to build a tapestry of love during Midsumma Westside, 23 January to 30 March 2022.

Join  artist Matto Lucas on Friday 28 January 4pm to 6pm  for an interactive art experience and then head down to the launch of the ‘Colours of the Rainbow in a diverse community’ exhibition at Louis Joel Arts & Community Centre in Altona, 6pm to 8pm.
