Norman, Yhonnie Scarce and Jemima Wyman in a new exhibition at Noosa Regional Art Gallery.

Issues of racism and discrimination against First Nations peoples and minority groups and the disrespect for, and desecration of culture and the natural environment are in the spotlight. The exhibition offers a platform for the artists to speak their truths, and presents an opportunity for understanding and connection.
