A Fierce Hope

Adderton: house and heart of mercy

12 Sep, 2019 - 3 May, 2020

Social enterprise and artist:
Happy Paws Happy Hearts + Donna Marcus
Hummingbird House + Maryann Talia Pau and Ranu James
Inala Wangarra + Robert Andrew
Outland Denim + Belinda Smith
OzHarvest + Elizabeth Willing
White Wreath Association + Dan Elborne

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.
