Inspired by the work of Tim Kelly, US artist and curator, the Connection Project is a visual collaborative arts project based on the notion that although we are all individuals, we have a place in the community and are better together.
In support of starting a national conversation about loneliness and what it means to be connected, 500 individuals including artists, celebrities, politicians, school children, community groups, as well as Feros Care staff, volunteers and clients each painted a piece of a giant jigsaw puzzle representing what ‘belonging’ means to them personally.
The result saw hundreds of jigsaw puzzle pieces assembled to form a large art installation which was unveiled at the launch of Be Someone For Someone and later displayed at Robina Town Centre on the Gold Coast, Queensland. Many pieces were donated by artists for sale with the proceeds generating more than $10,000 towards our programs to tackle loneliness.
You can see each piece and read the narrative for our artists in our online catalogue.

There are no extra pieces in the universe. Everyone is here because he or she has a place to fill, and every piece must fit itself into the big jigsaw puzzle.
