Art from the Heart of the Cross 2022
VENUE: 107 Redfern
Art from the heart of the Cross is an annual exhibition showcasing the diverse artistic talents of people who visit the Uniting Medically Supervised Injecting Centre (MSIC) in Kings Cross.
Established in 2001, in the heart of Sydney’s Kings Cross, Uniting MSIC was the first supervised injecting centre in the Southern Hemisphere and the English-speaking world. Since then, we’ve been providing safe and compassionate care for some of the most marginalised and disenfranchised members of our community. Uniting MSIC is a place where people can use drugs under the supervision of medical staff and health professionals, with the provision of emergency care if required, and access to broader health services including pathways to treatment and rehabilitation. We take the time to build relationships, so that people know we’re here when they’re ready and able to seek support.
Every year the centre also runs an art project, giving clients the opportunity to express themselves and their circumstances creatively. An empowering aspect of the project is the public display and silent auction of artworks in the Art from the Heart of the Cross exhibition.
Now in its 12th year, everyone is welcome at this powerful and thought-provoking exhibition, and everyone is invited to bid at the silent auction.
All proceeds go directly to the artists. Art from the heart of the Cross is a not-for-profit initiative of Uniting MSIC.
