world aids day...

Today marks the 20th Anniversary of World AIDS Day.
In 1988 the World Health Organization declared the first World AIDS Day in an effort to raise public awareness about HIV/AIDS issues, including the need for support and understanding for people living with HIV/AIDS.
The images (above) are works from IGAT HOPE - 'we have hope', a World AIDS Day event at Jugglers Art Space 103 Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley from 25 December to 7 December.
The new works by Peter Fenoglio explore traditions, cultural practices and survival in Papua New Guinea under the impact of HIV/AIDS.
