Local artists and community groups who have a story to tell are invited to join a collaborative community arts project.
As part of VicHealth’s Everyday Creativity Program, Baw Baw Shire Council and Arts and Health Gippsland are coordinating the Live – Well, Come – Share (Stories) project.
As part of the project, 10 small scale art projects will be delivered with mentoring from local artist Bec Vandyk, Director Arts and Health Gippsland, and Council’s Arts and Culture team.
Through the project, local community groups will have the opportunity to work alongside an artist to share the stories behind their group and develop artwork throughout the process.
Each project will be documented in small films that will be shared online and via projections in community spaces throughout the region.
The project will be delivered by Council and Arts and Health Gippsland in partnership with Baw Baw Arts Alliance, Latrobe Community Health Service and West Gippsland Libraries.
The Everyday Creativity grants program is designed to promote health and wellbeing at a local level through participation in arts and culture. Live – Well, Come – Share (Stories) is one of seven unique projects being delivered across Victoria as part of the program.
