“Encountering Hope!”

An exploration through art, hospitality, and conversation

St Oswald’s Anglican Church 100 High Street, Glen Iris, Melbourne

Sunday 27th November 2022, beginning at 3pm

Our meeting will take the shape of an exhibition of art, with food and drinks provided, and then conversation led by Rev Greg Crowe with Canon Glenn Loughrey and other artists on the theme, exploring it through their art.

Artist: Mark Lumley Wiradjuri, Yorta Yorta.

This piece is inspired by the Uluru Statement. It has the coming together of two sides, but not quite reaching to touch. Here is a gap full of hope. There are tracks of Emu and Kangaroo moving toward each other at the middle ground. The spirits of past elders are also moving down from the sky to support the hopeful action. The ropes attached to the 15kgs of log are there to lift this hopeful ideal. The weight is too great for only one person to lift. It will require at least two or more people to lift this dream, this responsibility, to close the gap and transform the Hope to reality.


Artists : Shane Charles Dylan Charles, Maddison Thorpe Russell Shiells, Mark Lumley, Glenn Loughrey.

This is a free PCNV event
