Art that speaks from the heart.
Art from the Heart of the Cross is an annual exhibition showcasing the diverse artistic talents of people who visit the Uniting Medically Supervised Injecting Centre (MSIC).
As 2021 marks the 20th anniversary of MSIC and we look towards what the next 20 years will bring, we selected this year’s theme to be Looking Forward. This theme allows us to catch a glimpse of what our artists envision for the future and shifts the focus away from what has been another difficult year for all of us throughout the COVID pandemic. We hope that you find yourself connecting with these works and the people who created them.
Saving lives since 2001
Uniting MSIC has been in operation since 6 May 2001. It remains the only service of its kind in NSW and is one of only two injecting centres currently available in Australia.
It’s a place where people can use drugs under the supervision of medical staff and health professionals who provide emergency care if required, and access to broader health services including pathways to treatment and rehabilitation. We take the time to build relationships, so that people know we’re here when they’re ready and able to seek support.
