UNSEEN: Dr Emily's Book Art exhibition

Where
Circular Quay
Circular Quay
Circular Quay, Sydney NSW 2000
Between Customs House 33 Alfred Street and Circular Quay Ferry Wharfs
When

Every day, 10am to 4:30pm Wednesday 1 December to Sunday 5 December

Dr Emily's Book Art exhibition is delicate ad fragile just like the story of her life.

Coming out was not a difficult event in Dr Emily's life, she was accepted and loved. She grew up in a wonderful family, was given a great education, had amazing job, found a wonderful partner, had a beautiful baby. Then everything fell apart and she found herself unexpectedly homeless.

Book Art became a reflection of Emily's passion, as reading and education.
