Together Apart

By Artist Sam St Jon
The 'Together Apart' Public Art Project is a photographic exhibit with a difference. Artist Sam St Jon has documented social distancing, focusing on how we have coped with the stress and uncertainty during the pandemic.

The exhibit is a series of portraits and stories documenting the resilience of Illawarra's community and shared experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. The socially distanced exhibit can now be viewed in various locations on display across Wollongong Central, as well as in the Wollongong City Library. 

Sam St Jon's work can also be viewed in the Renew Creative Container in the Crown Street Mall. Visit during the below opening hours to get involved, tell your story, and have your photo taken in the open-air photo booth by Sam St Jon.
