Fuji Xerox Australia Hosts ‘Xpressive’ Art Show

Fuji Xerox Australia Hosts ‘Xpressive’ Art Show

Fuji Xerox Australia is staging an art exhibition at the company’s North Ryde headquarters on February 27 to help raise funds for charity organisation United Way Sydney. Called ‘Xpressive’, the exhibition includes works by Fuji Xerox employees, and, as well as the charity cause, aims to create a sense of belonging and community in the workplace.

Attendees can expect to see a wide variety of works at the exhibition including oil paintings, jewellery, pottery, wild life drawings and even Japanese cartoon caricatures.

“Xpressive is a great opportunity for Fuji Xerox staff to show off their artistic talents, as well as helping a good cause,” explained Fuji Xerox Australia’s Corporate Account Manager and participating artist at the show, Kathrin Longhurst.

“Often it’s hard to find out your work colleagues’ talents much beyond their job description. It’s great to see so many employees from Fuji Xerox coming out and expressing their artistic passion- some of the works on display are truly inspirational – and it gives us the chance to see our colleagues in a different light.”

The artists are donating half of the funds raised at the exhibition to United Way Sydney. Fuji Xerox Australia has had an active relationship with United Way for nine years, with 120 employees currently participating in the organisation’s payroll deduction program.

According to Bill Downing, CEO of United Way Sydney, Fuji Xerox’s generous donation to United Way is a great corporate example of social responsibility.

“We value our partnership with Fuji Xerox Australia and appreciate their contribution to making a difference in the community with United Way,” said Downing. “This initiative is a perfect example of Fuji Xerox’s commitment to social responsibility – a commitment that has been increasingly demonstrated during our nine year relationship. We applaud their efforts and look forward to being part of a great art show.”
