Welcome to the annual 'What's Your Elephant' art exhibition. Each year, artworks selected reflect an ‘elephant in the room’ topic. This year the goal is to address topics that relate to ‘at-risk’ demographics, people and issues that have been heightened due to the global pandemic.pandemic and shelter in place which leaves at-risk people vulnerable This pandemic has pushed everyone to ‘shelter in place’ with many safe spaces and resources being closed or having limited public access. Though there are various opinions about the pandemic, however, the impact is felt far and wide. Such as domestic violence incidents have gone up and home is not always a safe space for many people.
The What’s Your Elephant 2020 annual exhibition & virtual chat aims to bring awareness to some of those topics.
For example:

Domestic violence
Abuse
Sexual abuse
Molestation

Depression

Feelings of isolation
Stress
and how do we cope
