Ararat - Refurbishment of a number of rooms at Aradale by the Friends of J Ward has enabled a thought provoking exhibition to go on display.
J Ward has been open to the public since 1993 and Aradale since 2009.
The proceeds received by Friends of J Ward from visitors, functions and donations goes into maintaining and preserving and improving the experience the public receive when visiting both old institutions.
Three rooms have now been refurbished at Aradale and the Hidden Lives exhibition installed.
This exhibition displays photos and information on how people have moved on with their lives after leaving institutions.
Visitors can view the exhibition before going on their tour at Aradale.
