Care is a relationship is an exhibition that draws on research projects led by the Art-based Knowledge Translation Lab at Black Dog Institute and the Knowledge Translation Strategic Platform of Maridulu Budyari Gumal SPHERE, exploring different aspects of care, and the social, emotional and environmental relationships at the heart of health and wellbeing. Part exhibition, part interactive makerspace, the project invites audiences to learn about and share experiences - from caring for a loved one with dementia, caring for our own and others' mental health, to caring for country in the face of climate collapse.
