2014 Art Competition - Open Section

The Loddon Healthy Minds Network have extended the junior Art Competition normally run in the Shire schools and created an Open Section. Anyone over the age of 18 can enter the competition which is to encourage people to think about Mental Health from an artistic perspective. Quite often the visual can convey messages that the printed word cannot. After all, we do think in pictures and not in words.  The competition will adopt the theme of the Healthy Minds Network for the 2014 year which is "Five Ways To Well Being".

Its focus is to provide a mental health topic that will create art and conversations amongst our youth. The greater the awareness that people have about mental health issues, the more positive a society we develop mental health wellbeing is a core value. There is still considerable stigma surrounding the topic of mental health. Competitions such as this and the conversations they create do a great job of breaking down the taboos in society regarding mental health.
