On Sacred Ground

Posted in Uncategorized on October 2, 2012 by Gwendolen De Lacy

Luna Park, St Kilda 1960s

Maggie Diaz has never returned to the USA, but the St Kilda area in Melbourne has been her sacred ground for more than 40 years.   We think it’s fitting, that at 87 years young and now recovered from pneumonia, she has an event close to home. 

Situated right next door to the Sacred Heart Community, where Maggie has been in residence since January, Graze on Grey is a stylish venue and the perfect location for a little show. 





When Maggie was first settling into the ‘Aged Care’ environment earlier this year, we would wander in to Graze for good coffee, food and chat and then we started to meet friends and patrons of the Diaz project there.  I joked with chefs and owners – Neil and Mo that we were using their restaurant as our office and lounge room and they encouraged us to do just that.  The next logical step was to hang some pictures! 











Print selection is in progress, so we welcome suggestions!  If you have a favourite Diaz image that you would love to see featured, please let me know…
