This pilot Artist in Residence Project brings people over the age of 18 together to promote health and well-being through creating art, sharing in local Aboriginal culture and learning new skills.

Participants will work together on collective art works that will be permanently displayed at Community Health@GV Health.

This innovative project strengthens and supports cultural inclusion and weaves new connections in our community. By encouraging active participation in the creation of art, we aim to achieve improved health for the community.

The art project will provide connection with the Aboriginal community, as well as healthy experiences and greater understanding.

The Goulburn Valley is home to a proud Aboriginal community, strong and united in its identity, participating equally in the social, economic and cultural life of Greater Shepparton. This project helps work toward a healthy future where the Greater Shepparton community respects, values and celebrates local Aboriginal heritage, identity and culture.

This project is supported by a Victorian Regional Arts Fund Project Grant. Registration is not essential. However, if you would like to register your interest or ask any questions, please call Sally Daff on (03) 5823 7910.
