How it works

Courage to Care NSW primarily exhibits in New South Wales, but also in Queensland, the ACT, and Western Australia. Generally the exhibition is hosted in regional galleries, but libraries or other venues that fulfil the exhibition and educational program requirements are also considered.

Schools in the region are invited to send students in Years 5-12 to the exhibition, where they have the opportunity to participate in a 2-hour integrated education program that includes audiovisual components, facilitated workshops and experiential learning processes. A unique feature of the program is a session with a ‘living historian’, a survivor from the Holocaust, who shares his or her positive story of rescue and survival and who explains the support he or she was given by others. The program highlights the power of the individual to make a difference by standing up to discrimination, prejudice and bullying – in the past, as well as in the present in our everyday lives. Programs are also available for educator, adult and community groups.

The exhibition is open to the general public and entry is free of charge. Courage to Care NSW subsidises transport costs for regional schools to and from the venue. For more information on where Courage to Care is running the program please visit our up to date List of Exhibitions.

Courage to Care also visits locations by invitation – if you are interested in hosting a Courage to Care exhibition please contact us.
