Launch & Fundraiser:
Magnet Docklands, Wolfgang Sievers and the Human Rights Law Centre
On Thursday 12 September at 6.30pm Magnet Docklands, the newest space for Magnet Galleries will officially open. Michael and Suzanne Silver, owners of Magnet, will be joined by Julian Burnside QC, a tireless advocate for human rights, who will officiate.
The event will also act as a fundraiser for the Human Rights Law Centre (HRLC). A number of original, signed prints by Wolfgang Sievers will be exhibited and available for purchase with all proceeds going to HRLC. Sievers bequeathed these works to Burnside for the express purpose of raising funds for human rights.
