Funding applications are invited from mental health service providers, community organisations, creative collectives, and individuals, for activities and events to be held during Mental Health Month in regional SA that aim to promote mental health, wellbeing and stigma reduction in the local community through arts and creativity.
We will be supporting creative activities and events that encourage and evolve mental health conversations and showcase the cultural value of Lived Experience voices. The amount available for each application is up to $1000.
Examples of creative activities include:
- Theatre or music productions
- Spoken word poetry, storytelling or comedy nights
- Writing, painting, photography or music workshops
- Film screenings
- Artist panels or creative presentations
- Murals and installations

Projects that demonstrate collaboration, partnership with, and participation from a number of organisations in one area and projects that demonstrate leadership by and co-design alongside community members with lived experience of mental illness will be well regarded.
Demonstration of strong in-kind and/or cash contributions from the applicant and partners will also benefit your application.
