To our valued community of creatives

It’s a rough time for the arts, the mental health sector, and our global community at large. Many of us are facing new challenges, and managing the reawakening of old anxieties too.
We hope that amid the chaos, some time and space may be emerging for rest, and for creation. Fortunately for those with a creative bent—each and every one of us—art making can be used as both a coping strategy and a powerful tool for connection. It can open opportunities for healing, and begin cycles of inspiration and education.
There is a wealth of knowledge on mindshare already around how to keep strong when times are tough, and now more than ever we are looking for contributions.

For artists
The theme for this month on mindshare is “Holding steady on uncertain ground”. We invite you to share your perspective, and your knowledge, in whatever form you see fit. mindshare welcomes all original creative work—short stories, poetry, blog posts, paintings, music recordings, photography… and much more. Just email us at mindshare@mhcsa.org.au!

For NGOs, teachers and art coordinators
In a digital time, mindshare is an established online platform where your students can continue showcasing their work and learning from fellow creatives. You can have a look at creative content here or support your students to contribute here.

Community is more important now than ever. As you’re keeping healthy, be sure to keep reaching out and keep creating. I look forward to hearing from you.
