Arts & Wellbeing Project Bank

The Arts and Wellbeing Project Bank shows a diverse range of art-making projects, transforming the lives of individuals and communities through creative process and connection with others. Tasmania has a long and broad history of arts activities that have contributed to individuals and communities sense of wellbeing. Tasmanian Regional Arts is showcasing just some of the many Arts Wellbeing projects that have taken place since 2006.

The diversity of projects is a reflection of the different regions of Tasmania, the range of art forms, social issues, health issues, urban and rural communities and the uniqueness of individuals. In their diversity, they all have one common outcome; they enable creative expression that is intrinsically healthy.

Thank you to Eleven Thh who compiled the information for each project and to the individuals who contributed their stories and images. Tasmanian Regional Arts hope you enjoy browsing through the Project Bank and that you find it informative and inspiring!
