Aimee Tarulli and Esther Navarro-Orejon have curated a lineup of twenty-seven big-name Australian creatives such as Miranda Skoczek, Stephen Baker, Rachel Castle and Emma Lipscombe who have created one-off, original works responding to the exhibition theme, No Peace In Quiet. 100% of the proceeds of these donated works will go towards an incredibly important cause, close to Aimee’s heart.
Late last year Aimee and her husband tragically lost two close friends to suicide. The loss left them deeply shocked, and with many unanswered questions, and as a mother of school-aged children, Aimee made it her mission to learn more and become an advocate for awareness around mental health. It was around this time a friend shared with her a video from Livin, an organisation dedicated to removing stigma around mental health by educating young people. ‘It really struck a chord with me and I felt so connected to their message’, Aimee explains about her response to Livin, ‘it made me think about my own kids and how they will learn to tackle their own issues growing up.’
As an interior stylist working with many artists and creatives, Aimee saw a link between the expression of art and discussing mental health. Drawing on her background and network, Aimee formulated the idea for No Peace In Quiet, and with Esther’s help, the pair have poured all their energy into developing a dynamic exhibition, with the aim to raise $50,000 for Livin’s mental health education and awareness programs in schools across the country.
The online auction element of this exhibition will go live on the No Peace In Quiet website this Thursday, June 21st, and bidding will be open until Sunday, July 1st. Anyone from around Australia can place a bid or make a donation to this very worthy cause.
