Previously called 'Art4Refugees', the Hand in Hand Art Exhibition is a celebration of art, community and culture in support of SCARF. SCARF welcomes refugee entrants in the Illawarra and helps them navigate the practical and personal challenges of starting a new life. We are currently calling out for contributing artists and sponsors for the 10th Anniversary of this established annual Wollongong event.
SCARF is a volunteer-powered community non-profit that supports humanitarian refugee entrants to resettle in the Illawarra. For 13 years, SCARF has worked to connect local volunteers with refugee entrants, providing friendship and targeted support to over 1700 people through all stages of their settlement experience.
