Clarence with his work of artSeven Interchange customers had their work featured in the recent As We Are art exhibition, for people who have an intellectual disability.

The exhibition, which featured a record number of entries this year, was held at Central Park in Perth and ran from October 5 to 16.

Rockingham customers Matt and Lorica, together with Spearwood customers David, Clarence, Colin, Lidia and Paul all entered one piece into the exhibition. Lorica also had the privilege of having her design selected as one of the As We Are Christmas Card packs, which were featured and sold as a fundraising initiative.

David, Clarence, Paul and Colin went to view the exhibition together with some mates during the last week of the exhibition, where they each posed for a photo with their work. They also enjoyed a coffee at the cafe in the foyer, before checking out the work from all the other talented artists.

We look forward to seeing what they produce for next year’s exhibition!
