Art of The Minds


Art of The Minds has evolved into a powerful community conversation centered on mental well-being.

Showcasing the brilliant talents of Surf Coast and regional artists in a week full of community based activities, this project forges connections with all community members from young to old.

Through creative art-based conversations ranging from theater, song, visual arts, music, beach sculptures, film, mindful family events, sport events with a twist, and an exciting education event, this festival gives our community the right to talk about mental illness, and the responsibility to support one another in this journey.
