Communities all across the world love to celebrate easter with an exhibition.
In 2020, many Australians are faced with hard choices in the aftermath of the bushfires that have swept across large swathes of the landscape. For some communities, it seemed timing would allow them to forge ahead with plans for easter events. For others, like Kangaroo Island, rescheduling was the only real choice to be made.
And then came COVID-19 and a new an even more unimaginable challenge for Easter exhibition organisers across the country.
The truth is, despite unprecedented numbers of bushfire-affected communities across every Australian state and territory, there are still beautiful places, incredible people, and amazing arts experiences all around us.
