‘Their Shadows in Us’, was a social history project that explored the culture of disability, specifically through Minda, a 110 year-old non-government disability support organisation based in South Australia. I had access to Minda’s archival material and research its past that changed and evolved with our society through the last century. I met Minda’s residents, some of whom came to live at Minda as infants. The project was done in collaboration with Tutti Visual Arts Studio, a program that supports artists with intellectual disabilities.
Project was supported by Arts SA and exhibition was held at Flinders University Art Museum & City Gallery, Adelaide State Library in 2014.
