what’s in your headspace?
Are you creative, aged between 12 and 25, and interested in youth mental health? From the 1st of July to the 28th of September, headspace Elsternwick is running its very first art competition, organised by its Youth Advisory Committee, a group of young people interested in creating community connections and raising awareness of mental health issues.
The theme of the competition is ‘What’s in your headspace?’ Just about any type of artwork can be entered, including drawings, paintings, photography, and sculptures. All entries will be judged by a panel of local artists, and displayed at headspace Elsternwick until Mental Health Week in October.
Terms and conditions and entry forms are available via the Facebook event page. Entry is free and there are many great prizes to be won, including prizes kindly donated by local businesses Untitled Art Supplies and Avenue Bookstore. Winners will be announced in October.
