Fundraiser at Magnet

28 Jan 2020

Fundraiser at Magnet Image

After the devastating bushfires in south-eastern Australia this summer, Magnet Gallery in Docklands is donating funds from its upcoming exhibition to the relief effort.

The gallery, located at The District, is soon to launch its Memento exhibition. Money raised will go towards the Country Women’s Association (CWA) Emergency Fund.

The fund, which has been in operation since 1934, supports families with domestic expenses who have lost their homes in fires, floods or other emergencies.

Magnet’s director Susanne Silver said it was fitting the upcoming exhibition, the annual celebration of female photographers, was helping the CWA.

“This exhibition is held in March every year to connect with International Women’s Day on March 8. This year it’s so appropriate that a group of women photographers will be donating to a women’s group to help women and their families in fire-ravaged areas,” Mrs Silver said.

Memento will feature works from over 30 photographers and explore the theme of memories and mementoes, acknowledging that along with their homes, those displaced from the fires lose treasured family memories, some of which have been passed down through generations. Prior to the outbreak of the fires, plans for the exhibition centred around celebrating the nine preceding years of the women’s show.

Memento opens on February 13 with a launch event from 6:30pm - 8:30pm. The exhibition will then run until March 8.
