Creatively exploring the troubling complexities of the past, in communities today
A Note from Avery
It’s fabulous! I’m so honoured to have my work activated as everybody associated with the project has done. Thank you for returning it to me so much better than it started out!!
I hope that the project and the ghosts labs will continue and I can be more involved.
PS – also love that photo of your mum
