The Password is Courage

Town Hall Gallery is very pleased to present an exhibition of artwork devoted to the idea of resilience and courage in the face of adversity, as part of Mental Health Week. The Quest Hawthorn Community Project Wall is graced with 30 original artworks and 30 poster versions of those works by community artists from Boroondara. We launched the show yesterday to a very enthusiastic crowd and much merriment. City of Boroondara Mayor Cr Coral Ross officially opened the exhibition to a thronging mass of artists and art lovers.

Mental Health Week aims to activate, educate and engage the public about mental health through a national awareness campaign. Led by CROP (Community Recreation Outreach Project) Coordinator, Laurel Gorman, this exhibition brings together the artistic talents of our community in recognition of issues around mental health and celebrating a creative resilience through art.

Limited edition runs of the posters sell for $10 and original artworks are for sale for very reasonable prices. The exhibition runs until 1 November, so come on down and support a worthy cause and celebrate some terrific local Boroondara talents.
