Connect2Group's Community Arts Precinct continues to support people with disability or mental health for over 10years. We believe that everybody deserves access to the arts and the opportunity to participate in a creative and social outlet to express their feelings and artistic flare. Our program aims to give every participant a unique opportunity to contribute to the community’s artistic and cultural landscape and provides a unique service throughout the Redlands including those most vulnerable. We do this by bringing aspiring artists together, and bridging the gap between artists living in isolation and the wider public community. Our participants are looking to enter several pieces of artwork into the Brisbane City Council Art Of The Margins exhibition later this year and any financial support will greatly assist in purchasing sufficient art resources and allow the group to hire a bus to attend the exhibition in person.

Fully Agree! 'Carramar' Diversional Therapists need $'s & increased volun-teer support to run activities for those who need to utilise their services. Diversional Therapy is not seen as an 'essential need', yet, as a retired O.T. Assistant&Snr.Div.Therapist, I know that these activities give folk 'a purpose for living'/'for existing' as they look forward positively to sharing in these activities & producing 'something' they can keep or give away to family & friends. These activities could be a shared activity like building/ constructing a bird bath for the gardens, wrappingup Christmas presents for themselves & others or making Easter Cards to send to family or sell on community stall. (Look at Leisure/Recreational Activities for N.Homes, especially those who follow 'Altos' or 'Eden' Principles.) Cheers, Lorraine 0409173853/ email@example.com
