The Courage to Care program and travelling 3D exhibition is a community outreach initiative that demonstrates the importance of standing up to bullying and prejudice whenever it occurs. It provokes conversations about social justice and bystander intervention in our communities. Through first-hand stories of survivors of the Holocaust and their rescuers, Courage to Care empowers visitors to recognise that, with their choices and actions, they can make a difference when confronted with discrimination, prejudice and bullying.
Courage to Care invites members of the public to view the exhibition on Mondays to Fridays 9am-5pm and Sundays 2-4pm. Bookings may be made for two hour guided sessions on the Sunday mornings of the exhibition.
All schools in the region are invited to book student groups who will have a guided tour
of the exhibition, hear a Holocaust survivor’s positive story first hand and take part in a facilitated workshop. Group professional learning twilight sessions are also offered and bookings essential.
There is no admission charge however visitors are asked to make a gold coin donation. For general public guided tours, student bookings and group professional development bookings, please contact Catholic Education Services on 4050 9700 or courage2care@cns. catholic.edu.au
Beginning in 1999, the exhibition has been visited by nearly 190,000 people Australia wide.
Courage to Care encourages the development of a peaceful society, with understanding and respect for all minority groups.
