This multimedia exhibition portrays 15 emerging artists and designers from cultural and linguistically diverse communities, who are actively involved with Space2b. It presents each artist’s respective journey to Australia and an insight into their creative work, often influenced by their cultural heritage. Photographer Andy Drewitt captures what is important to each artist in their pursuit of a creative life. Each person also shares a memento, a reminder of their homeland. In some cases the box remains empty, a reminder that the person arrived with nothing
