Hopeful futures for disadvantaged people have always been at the heart of the Sisters of Mercy work. Taking its inspiration from the enterprising, socially conscious women of Adderton’s past, A Fierce Hope pairs six social enterprises with six contemporary artists to explore that enterprise’s ethos and work.
These six innovative and passionate initiatives, galvanised by hope, are working to make a difference: to inform, to invite community engagement, to empower people to find their voice for advocacy in the community, nation and beyond. The artworks, produced over a period of 18 months, reveal the collaboration, commitment and ingenuity of the artists and their paired South East Queensland enterprises in thought-provoking ways.
A Fierce Hope reveals hope as a compelling force for action: action that is both compassionate and challenges systemic injustice. They invite visitors to enjoy A Fierce Hope—and come away fiercely inspired to take their own small steps towards a more just and tolerant society.
