Purple Road

Purple Road is a community awareness campaign which grew out of a roll of material, some forgotten balls of wool, and lots of enthusiasm from a small group of people who share a hope of spreading a message. The continually growing road is made up of thousands of hand-made purple flowers, contributed via volunteers in art and craft groups and older adults of our community.

Purple is the colour of age and wisdom. Every flower represents someone’s story, a conversation or reflection relating to the very important, yet sensitive subject of elder abuse. Elder abuse is a human rights issue which can prevent someone from ageing positively. The Purple Road is a collaborative artwork, a visual representation of the rights of an older person which gives rise to positive ageing and empowerment of our older community members.
