The largest shopping centre on the Mornington Peninsula, Bayside Centre attracts an average of 1.5 million people each December alone. This year, members of the community have been invited to spread the spirit of Christmas in the centre through the use of art therapy.
A bespoke piece of artwork, created by students from the Brotherhood of St Laurence’s Transition to Work program, will be on display in the centre throughout December. Students have begun work at Kindred Art Space in Frankston, a unique art space and centre dedicated to mental health and well-being. The process invites collaboration and encourages students to take part in art therapy sessions where creativity is allowed to be exercised freely in a nurturing environment.
The artwork will reflect the students’ creative ideas and perception of Christmas in our community and will be on display on Level 2 of the centre. To stay up to date with the installation, visit the centre’s webpage, Facebook page or Instagram.
