Aphotography exhibition has been organised in support of Australian anti-bullying foundation ‘Dolly’s Dream,’ which will launch on ‘do it for dolly day’.
Dolly’s Dream was established by Dolly’s family in 2018 after Dolly took her life at just 14 years of age after experiencing ongoing and sustained bullying.
The exhibition, “A Single Detail” was organised by Parker Coonawarra Estate Cellar Door Manager Dimity Savage, who helped look after Dolly as a child and remains a close family friend.
Mrs Savage approached Willalooka photographer Sarah Cunningham with the idea, who embraced the opportunity to fundraise for Dolly’s Dream.
“I want to support that beautiful girl every day, she had so much more to give in her life,” Mrs Savage said.
“It does not matter who or where you are, this is not going away, I want to make sure this day happens every year for as long as I live and my children will continue to do the same.”
The official opening will take place at ‘The Stillage’ at Parker Coonawarra Estate from 5pm until 7pm tomorrow with drinks and canapes.
This project was made possible by the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund, which supports the arts in regional and remote Australia.
