National Reconciliation Week 2022

National Reconciliation Week Celebration in Ballarat

Creating art can have powerful and positive impacts on health and wellbeing and can strengthen communities by offering an expression of identity and culture.

Art therapy uses the creative process of making art as a safe way to represent inner experiences, develop awareness and support personal change. As part of BCH’s National Reconciliation Week activities, we invite you to join Ballarat-based Aboriginal artist, Shu Brown and Ballarat Community Health’s art therapy specialist, Alisa Tanaka-King, for a moderated Q&A discussion about the many benefits of art used as mental health therapy. This online event will be recorded and is FREE for anyone to join.

CLICK HERE to register. 

If you have any questions for Alisa or Shu that you’d like to submit before the event, please email them to [email protected] by 30 May for inclusion.
