Words in Windows is a global initiative by Micro Galleries.
Creatives from across the globe placed our ideas, poetry, positive protest, message of love, hope, resilience, questions, imaginings for a post-COVID society in windows for friends, family, neighbours – anyone!
The idea is that no matter how small our audience, how tiny the window, how small the impact, we litter our windows with words that make our buildings artworks, inject something wonderful into the lives of passers-by, and build a new literary narrative for the future. We had creatives from Nairobi to Jakarta to Hong Kong to Sydney who wrote their messages out for the world to respond to.
People greater than Money,
Through isolation and lockdown across the world, I’ve seen extraordinary acts of kindness and strength in communities grow.
I wanted to make a statement with this work about our PM here in Australia, and many other countries. Who are not focusing on its people during this time, instead, demonstrating that they are more concerned about the money in their pockets and the economy than the health and well-being of the people they should be leading.
PEOPLE > MONEY.
