The No Added Sugar exhibition opening at the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre on Saturday 12 May 2012 is the culmination of twelve months of community engagement and hard work by the artists and project coordinators. The group of artists from different cultural backgrounds have worked with the Australian Muslim Women’s Arts Project (AMWAP) initiatives in Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra.
The project is a national arts engagement project, funded by the Human Rights Commission and the Australia Council for the Arts. The AMWAP link above includes the names of all the artists and staff involved in the project.
