SAFE Grant Recipient 2013

Multiple Sclerosis, By John Briggs

An absolute life saver. It enabled me to take my art to its natural progression – an exhibition!

John Briggs is a visual artist from Dutton Park in Brisbane who has since relocated to the UK.


John was awarded a SAFE grant in 2013 to go towards Unframed, his exhibition at the Fortitude Valley gallery Jugglers Art Space.


What did the SAFE grant mean to John?


“As a result of staging the exhibition I learnt about the other side of art – the presentation.  My art was a medium with which to communicate.” 


“At the end of the day, the SAFE grant brings people together and they communicate, which is a good thing.”
