Connect | Relate | Create is an online creative program that connects and supports Border and North East’s arts community.

Over six weeks, you are invited to participate in a range of creative workshops via Zoom to enable connection, encourage creativity, and boost wellbeing.

The program not only aims to increase the mental health of our hard hit arts community, but encourages the development of new ideas and skills through a range of art forms.

Kicking off with an artist wellbeing workshop led by phycologist Dr Louise Cooper (Talking Emotions/Arts and Wellbeing Collective), the following weeks will include a writing workshop with Alyson Evans, a drawing workshop, a movement workshop with Jodie Farrugia, and a singing workshop. The project culminates with IDEAS LAB, a space where artists of any art form can self-nominate to present a short visual presentation on a seed ideas they are exploring.

Participants are encouraged to think outside of their art form and attend all workshops.
