Through the ‘Important to Me’ Art Exhibition, UnitingSA’s Communities for Children program provides the opportunity for children to share what’s important to them using art.
Held annually during Families Week, the initiative invites children up to 13 to express what matters most to them through a drawing and an accompanying description.
This provides young people – who are experts about their own lives – with a voice. Listening to children helps parents, friends and our community better understand their feelings, interests, aspirations and what they need to thrive.
A special thank you to the children who have shared their artwork and stories as part of this initiative. They have brought joy and understanding to all.
