Many of those who are impacted by Mental Illness utilise art as a tool for expression, well being and therapy. Individual recovery is our journey and often mediums such as Art and other creative forms help people grow and change in this process.

Gratitude is a thought process encouraging happy hormones and a more positive outlook on life. Following this year's pandemic many people have been further impacted by Mental Health issues, however, as Australians, we have much to be grateful for and celebrate.

This event has seen artists impacted by Mental Illness express thoughts and insight into their individual recovery, wellbeing and therapy. It has also helped artists open up, change and grow through the experience of exhibiting, connecting with others of lived experience or family and friends, and having their work affirmed by the public and wider audience. The conversation has always been open, educational and comforting in this very welcoming and safe space.

Some items will be for sale
