Imagine students actively
engaged in teams - with their teachers and performing &
visual artists - to explore arts techniques including dance,
drama, music, movement, role play, circus, mask-making, mosaic,
multimedia, painting, puppetry and poetry!
Imagine these teams using these techniques to explore mental
health issues in highly creative, problem-solving, solution
focused, health promoting ways and having fun at the same time!
Imagine the team in each school inviting parents, family,
friends and community members to join in too, and to form the
audience for a combined performance and exhibition with other
local schools to share and celebrate their diverse artworks and
finished performance pieces!
The Festival for Healthy Living does all this and more. It is an
exciting and innovative mental health promotion strategy, auspiced
by The Royal Children's Hospital Mental Health, which builds capacity in schools and
communities for mental health promotion through the arts.
