Servants Community Housing has been operating affordable accommodation and safe housing for those on low incomes for over a quarter of a century in Hawthorn, and more recently in Kew. Since 2009, through the Services program, Scotch boys have been working with Servants to gain a greater understanding of key social justice issues and to connect with residents through their stories.
Late in Term 2, the Servants Project continued with the creation of an exhibit called ‘The Installation of Hope’, which showcased resident and student stories of hope. The show was designed to build awareness through connection to personal stories. Scotch boys have been part of every stage of this process; from researching to writing to filming to marketing.
Members of the Boroondara community, staff and students also contributed to the project by responding to prompts on our ‘Hope Boards’. It was a wonderful opportunity to engage with our community and to reflect on the way hope connects us.
