artistry and creativity encouraging wellbeing

This looks great - a month of artistry and creativity to encourage wellbeing. Get along if you can! Francine Sherman's are the hands in the film of my poem, 'Woe Is'; I also met Hakim Oerton during those workshops. Both are generous, creative souls, as I'm sure the other two artists in residence are. 

It is so encouraging to see the level of awareness and attention starting to be paid to our mental health, our overall wellbeing. The more we talk together, listen together, gather together, the healthier we will be, individuals and communities. 

Artists in Residence this October
 

To mark Mental Health Week, we're spending the month of October creating art in the new Adelaide City Library.

mindshare artists are camping out in the new Adelaide City Library to celebrate Mental Health week.

Artists David Jobling, Francine Sherman, Hakim Oerton and Tom Stewart will each dedicate a week in October to running workshops in the Library.

David Jobling kicks off the month with a week of creative writing workshops, a reading of the play The Wonderful World of Dossocia by Anthony Nielson and displaying his own 3D poetry.

We'll then have Tom Stewart teach you how to get the best looking video on a budget. Following is Francine Sherman with a workshop on creating a combination art piece and how to draw flowers. Finally in the last week of October will be Hakim Oerton running workshop on writing about place and feeling.


All workshops are free but you will need to book ahead. Just click here to see times and dates.

During Mental Health Week the Library will also be screening mindshare films in Studio One. So drop in, pull up a seat and enjoy some digital stories, documentaries and short films on us.

You can also keep up to date on our websitefacebook page or follow us on twitter with all that is happening for Mental Health Week.
