A quick call to council and the friendly staff at Helen Abrahams office provided all the information we needed to calm the masses.I will attempt to provide regular images as the work progresses.
There is quite a bit of activity going on at the moment with some funky developments at the Absoe market space and I also paid a visit to some of the local graffiti shrines.
With my trusty phone in hand I grabbed a few images for those who never get to see the sights in West EndWest End Community Association West End Community House West End Story Spaces West End Uniting ChurchThe West End MagazineWestender

The painting features 20th Century cultural figures including John Lennon and Audrey Hepburn alongside St Mary’ MacKillop. if you look closely at the image you will also see a passing tribute to one of the classic Queensland works of Mary MacKillop by Luke Roberts which now hangs in the Francis Rush Centre.

May the blessings of the Easter Season surround us with courage and confidence. May we stand against the religion of Empire and proclaim the liberating anarchy of the teachings of Christ.
May we roll away the stones of fear and prejudice in our lives.May we open our tombs and walk in the light of justice,compassion and solidarity with the poor of the earth.
May we sing “Alleluia” with voices that cry out against economic and political exploitation of vulnerable people.
May we walk gently on our mother earth in lives of nonviolence and find the harmony of life that is written in the stardust of our being.
May the love of the Easter story invade our hearts to welcome those who come to our shores as Refugees and Asylum Seekers.
May the mystery of the Easter story call us to live “Dadirri” in solidarity with the First Nations people of our land.
May we proclaim the Risen One by our public commitment to housing the homeless, feeding the hungry and thirsty, liberating prisoners,welcoming the stranger in our midst and standing against the powers of economic and political newspeak.
