Supported by Vegilicious Restaurant and Truffles Cafe, Otto & Spyke & Sacred Heart Mission.

100 Stripey Monkeys for Acceptance & Respect
is a community inclusion project that has involved newly arrived 
migrants and community members working together over the past six months to make stripey monkeys from recycled materials.
Using old scarves, well loved jumpers and outgrown children’s clothes these workshops have involved over 200 participants meeting in Truffles cafe, Vegilicious Restaurant, at schools and in people’s home to make well over 100 monkeys.
Each monkey is named and loved and remind us that everyone deserves a chance to be happy, safe and accepted. The stripey monkeys are for sale and profits will support new migrant training programs at Space2b.
Every fifth monkey made goes to a child
in detention.
