We know that healthy friendships help children to feel safe. That’s why this year the theme for our Art and Creative Writing Showcase comes from this year’s Children’s Week theme; Article 15 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child

Children have the right to meet with other children and young people and to join groups and organisations, as long as this does not stop other people from enjoying their rights. 

At the Australian Childhood Foundation, we are driven to create a world where children feel safe and supported to participate, learn, explore and create. You can help us continue to support children whose voices and childhoods have been affected by violence, abuse and neglect. 

Sadly, children who grow in communities that do not listen to or value their voice and opinions become vulnerable to violence and abuse. We believe that children’s agency should be respected and that allowing children choice and ability to voice their opinion leads to healthy growth and development.  

By creating this showcase, we are hoping to amplify the voice of children and demonstrate the right for children in our community to be heard.
