Art helps us to explore and interpret our stories and, in turn, share discoveries and learn more about how other people see the world. Participation in arts activities expand our networks, strengthen our social bonds and bring our communities closer together – the foundations for mental wellbeing.

VicHealth is proud to have partnered with Arts Victoria and Castanet in the development of this practical step-by-step guide. We hope it inspires more creative community activities now and into the future.
