COURAGE TO CARE IN WOLLONGONG, 2023

 

The next Courage to Care exhibition will take place at Wollongong Art Gallery from September 23rd to November 26th, 2023.

An official opening night event will take place on Tuesday, October 3rd, from 6pm, and will include the announcement and presentation of our 2023 Local Upstanders. Please come and join us!

 

COURAGE TO CARE SCHOOLS PROGRAM

 

Courage to Care’s Schools Program will be available for bookings at Wollongong Art Gallery on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays between October 31st – November 16th. A bespoke program can also be tailor for interested clubs, community groups and organisations. There are two sessions available per day: between 9:30am-11:30am, and 12:30pm-2:30pm.

 

Drawing on the context of the Holocaust to demonstrate powerful examples of ‘Upstanders’ who spoke out against discrimination, the program aims to inspire students to incorporate ‘Upstanding’ behaviour into their own everyday lives by empowering them with strategies for doing so. Participants leave with an understanding that everyone has the capacity to make a difference, and small acts of kindness can go a long way.


The ninety-minute session includes: an introduction to the historical context; a guided tour of the Courage to Care exhibition; the opportunity to hear directly from a Holocaust survivor; and small group workshops that allow students to connect their learning experience with their everyday lives.

Spreading the Message

Since its inception, Courage to Care has been spreading its important message by mounting public exhibitions in galleries and community centres right across NSW. Bringing together audio-visual media, precious historical objects and a wealth of educational content, our exhibition is a powerful and intimate way to learn what it means to be an Upstander.

 

Exhibition Workshop Program

At each exhibition, a specially developed education program driven by our passionate Volunteers and trained facilitators is available for bookings. The ninety-minute program, which includes a short film; a guided tour of the exhibition; a workshop; a facilitated discussion; and the unique opportunity to speak directly with a Holocaust survivor, is free for all visiting schools.

 

Community Focused

Although the majority of exhibition workshop participants are school students, it is open to everyone and can be of tremendous benefit to local community groups, businesses, and clubs. Courage to Care exhibitions have a strong community focus and seek to engage local communities through initiatives like the Local Upstander campaign, in which we identify and celebrate Upstanders making a difference in the communities we have the privilege of visiting.
