Lake Wendouree Foreshore 'We Make a Stand' 1, 2018, photographer Paul Dunn .jpg

Wendy Bolger & Paul Dunn - Ballarat

A collaboration between refugee activist Wendy Bolger and Melbourne photographer Paul Dunn, We Make a Stand, is a critical response to the Australian Government’s harsh border protection policy.  Lake Wendouree foreshore becomes the site for this sculptural work. Trees are wrapped with images of people participating in refugee rallies, conveying messages which call for the dissolution of borders, and for the welcoming of refugees.

Wendy is involved in regional and national refugee advocacy activities. She has a Master of Arts from Federation University Ballarat. Paul has been documenting campaigns and public actions for refugee rights in Australia since 2003, and his work is in the National Library of Australia collection.
