John Puli is a participant in Scope’s Telescope writing program, and is part of the 27% of people in Australia who have a mental illness and/or disability.

This month, John and friends present the second instalment of the exhibition 27%. The focus for this exhibition is on raising awareness about this 27%  segment of the population and how these people access galleries.

Through this show, John hopes to raise funds to improve issues of accessibility.
