Lighthouse is delighted to be once again part of the Festival with the 'Exploring the Present Through Our Past' exhibition. The exhibition explores storytelling through adolescence, spirituality and social issues. Told by community members from St Georges Road Primary School Hub, Wilmot Road Primary School Hub, Mooroopna Primary School Hub, Family Haven and Olly, these artworks showcase the stories given to us throughout our lifetime, which we continue to share today.

The Lighthouse Team are excited to have participated in the Shepparton Festival's 'Item of Connection' project. This project, led by Cam Matheson, was designed to create space for conversation and storytelling, which is an integral part of community recovery. The resulting exhibition aims to represent what local people experienced, celebrate our community, and share stories of resilience and healing. Several Lighthouse staff who delivered the GV Cares flood response program had their photo taken, including Chris Windsor (pictured). A qualified mechanic, Chris assessed 28 flood-damaged cars, 9 of which he got back on the road. He also sourced several second-hand vehicles, including one donated by a generous community member. Chris worked to ensure the cars were serviced, taken for roadworthy testing, and gifted to flood-impacted families who needed extra support to get back on their feet. GV Cares is Lighthouse's emergency response initiative, and during the floods, over 150 GV Cares volunteers packed and distributed food packages to organisations and individuals.
