In 2022 we received more expressions of interest from creative artists to be part of our Festival of Now event than we ever have before! As it was the 10th Anniversary of Adelaide’s only Festival of mental health and wellbeing, we tried to make it as huge as possible, but there’s only so many hours on a runsheet and only so much space in a park.
However, to celebrate these artists creativity and how it plays a role in bouncing back from their mental health challenges, mindshare and Festival of Now ’22 Artist Liaison Phi Theodoros collaborated to make an Art-Ception; a mini showcase (mindshare FoN showcase) inside a medium showcase (the mindshare creative hub) inside a large showcase (Festival Of Now)!
As part of this special 10th Anniversary showcase, on the event day we had poems by Jenny Benham and Lorraine Moore hung in an art installation alongside illustrations and words by KJ Hepworth, a huge colouring in activity also using KJ’s beautiful artwork, an artist stall by Peter Kiil, and a display featuring QR codes with online links to our other artists. During our mindshare Group Exhibition Launch Party , Sarah Rose Millar performed for our guests and Jenny reviewed the launch for our blog!!
Thanks to everyone who joined us in person and in spirit at the Festival, and online!
Here is a break down of the mindshare/Festival Of Now creatives we were unable to fully collaborate with at FoN 2022, written by the absolutely LOVELY social services students currently on placement with the Creative Outreach team at Life Without Barriers, lead by the effervescent Phi Theodoros. We feel so grateful to the LWB students and volunteers for capturing this special 10th Anniversary mindshare/FoN 2022 Creativity Showcase!
