HEARTCORE is a terrific project which I’ve been looking forward to sharing with you!
I think they describe the project best so please read on!

“The stories of some of Victoria’s most vulnerable children and young people will be told, in their own words, with the launch of the HEARTCORE book.

In an Australian first, children’s charity Berry Street and international street artist, Kaff-eine, have collaborated to create a unique and compelling body of work for the benefit of disadvantaged young people.

Berry Street runs 3 independent schools for young people who are disengaged from mainstream education. Short stories, raps and poems written by these students have been interpreted by Kaff-eine and painted as a series of street art works on walls across Melbourne’s CBD & the inner-north.

The striking images were shot by Rowena Naylor Photography and a beautiful coffee-table book will be launched on Thursday, September 25, featuring the photos alongside the stories that inspired them.

The HEARTCORE book gives audiences a raw, confronting insight into the lives of these young people. The book provides the young people with a genuine opportunity to have their voices heard.

The striking artwork lends a powerful, symbolic imagery to the raw and confronting stories.

All book proceeds will support Berry Street’s work with children and young people. Come to the September launch to get your own copy!”
