“This is my family, and there was a rainbow and everybody liked looking at it and then the rainbow was still there at night time. My family stayed up late to look at the rainbow. This is my mummy, my mama, my little brother, Oisin and me”


This Mardi Gras there was a very special art project and exhibition. The Inaugural 2017 Mardi Gras Children’s Art Exhibition showcased the works of over 84 children from our community.


Artist Anna Magdalena Laerkesen was employed  as a community artist for this project. She facilitated a huge communal art project as part of 2017 Fair Day. Some 74 children and young people contributed to “ Big Wendy”. This large scale art work was the centrepiece of the exhibition. More children submitted individual art work on the theme of family and place.  A huge thank you to the emerging young artists.

Rainbow Families would like to Acknowledge the City of Sydney for funding this project.
