Connection Calls Official Festival Launch


On World Mental Health day, the Art of the Minds festival will be officially launched.

The month-long mental health and wellbeing festival calls for awareness, education and advocacy against the stigma associated with mental illness. The event is about connecting to the call of community in standing firm in support of mental wellness.

Councillor Rose Hodge of the Surf Coast Shire will be joining us for the launch before having her portrait painted live by the talented Jackie Burke. Let the Spirit African drum beat into your minds and hearts as you enjoy a complimentary drink and nibbles before hearing lived experience stories from a courageous Foundation61 participant.

You may enjoy some dinner while learning more about the amazing local Alcohol and Drug support program, Foundation 61.

By attending the night, you will be in the running to receive spot prizes from Boardriders Inc. The event is free for all.
