‘The Journey’ Tapestry Unveiling
Ballarat Community Health
11am Friday 13th April

The Victoria Street site of Ballarat Community Health will be home to a unique tapestry created by Envision Employment Services and depicting the journey from addiction to recovery. Making a Change, the innovative alcohol and other drug day rehabilitation program is run by BCH from the Victoria Street premises and the tapestry will offer a visual representation of the journey participants may take.
Commissioned in 2017 by Ballarat Community Health, ‘The Journey’ was produced over a six month period by 18 participants of Envision’s Textile program. Envision Employment train and support young and older disadvantaged jobseekers within the work for the dole program.
The final design, by Teresa Kenny, is a symbolic landscape that represents and facilitates discussion about recovering from addiction.
Inspiration was taken from the Ballarat Community Health building, its garden and the surrounds.
Ballarat Community Health welcomes the beautiful new addition of “The Journey”.
