Local artist, Katrina Elliott, has engaged with staff, patients, family and friends at the Gladstone Base Cancer Care Unit to help fold 1000 paper cranes as part of One Wish, an exhibition exploring hope, health, courage and support. Inspired by the traditional belief of Senbazuru - if one folds 1000 cranes, one’s wish will come true - the locally handmade cranes will form part of a large installation displayed within the exhibition. Photography, sculpture and assemblage works will also be on display along with a hands-on station that gives visitors the opportunity to participate in Senbazuru.
One Wish is supported by Harbour City Accounting Qld, Katrina Elliott Photography, Gladstone Valley Funerals, Hub Total Fitness and Fanelli Dental.
The exhibition received financial assistance from the Gladstone Region Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF), a partnership between the Queensland Government and Queensland local councils.
