Australian Volunteers for International Development, an Australian Government initiative, provides skilled Australians with the opportunity to share their skills with people and organisations in developing countries to make a difference as part of Australia's overseas aid program.
To celebrate and recognise the 'footprint' returned Australian Volunteers for International Development have had in country and the continued linkages between Alumni and communities in Asia, the Pacific and Africa, a special photography exhibition will be held at the State Library of Victoria on Tuesday, 9th June 2015 (opening night) and Wednesday, 10th June 2015.
This group exhibition will showcase twenty handpicked photos taken by Australian volunteers; each displayed photo depicts the volunteer's personal footprint in the community, their host organisation, or a 'selfie'.
On opening night (Tuesday, 9th June 2015) event-goers will also have the opportunity to meet returned Australian volunteers, Scope Global staff and Australian Partner Organisations and hear from guest speakers whilst enjoying refreshments. The event will run from 6pm to 8pm.
Registration is essential if you wish to attend the opening night event (Tuesday, 9th June 2015). Please RVSP by Friday, 29th May using the form here.
The exhibition will then open on Wednesday, 10th June from 10am to 3pm. Registration is not required for the Wednesday session.
The Australian Government is working in partnership to send volunteers overseas through the Australian Volunteers for International Development program.
