What is Art of the Minds?
Art of the Minds aims to activate, educate and engage Surf Coast and the wider community about creatively managing mental health and wellbeing. Our message is in both the prevention of mental illness, supporting those in the early stages of developing a mental illness, and for those who maybe worsening with a mental illness, that there is hope in recovery.
Celebrating Creative Community Conversations & Connections in recovery is our focus.
Our mission will be achieved through a week of interactive events across the Surf Coast Shire, where Art of the Minds will continue to focus on creative conversations through a festival of mental wellbeing.
The festival events will be open to all ages of community, in providing creative educational conversations around mental wellbeing, both from a prevention focus and a management focus of mental illness.
Education events will include, an official shire launch, art exhibitions, musical performances, lived experience theatre shows, family fun yoga and meditation sessions, mindful walks, a community ball with an education twist, a range of sporting events highlighting the relationship to mental wellbeing, and an education seminar supported by professional education and mental health services.
