Call for submissions! Art for Wellbeing Exhibition
For the third year in a row, we are excited to announce we are hosting the Broome Art for Wellbeing Exhibition during Mental Health Week in October.
The Art for Wellbeing exhibition showcases creative works entered by members of the Kimberley community, embedded with an important message that being creative is beneficial to one’s mind, body, spirit and culture.
The exhibition is unique in that the artworks are accompanied by an artist’s statement, offering personal insights into the artists’ inner thoughts and feelings, as well as sharing benefits of the creative process.
The aim of the exhibition is to promote mental health awareness, the benefits of creating art and the local services available to support mental health and wellbeing, whilst also bringing the community together.
The exhibition will again this year be held at Broome Boulevard, with the venue kindly donated by Primewest Broome Boulevard.
