In 2016 the EMC’s late Director, Ms Chris Stokman, saw the concrete pillar dividing the centre as an opportunity for something beautiful; a community mosaic.
In March 2017, we welcomed the ACT Deputy Chief Minister, Yvette Berry, and other guests as our EMC mosaic was officially unveiled. With the support of Canberra mosaic artist Kim Grant, guests, staff, volunteers, local politicians and service providers all contributed to the mosaic’s creation. For many of us it was our first experience of this craft and we found it challenging and interesting and the final result was incredibly rewarding.
It is still admired every day. It is a great memorial for Chris and her photo on the pillar smiles over us all.
