in the arts for good.
It is with a heavy heart we closed the doors at 11 Station Street, Mittagong.
Due to ongoing issues with water ingress, the building was no longer suitable and we made the decision to look for a new space.
We are still operating our mentoring programs in the community and excited about what is next!
Thank you to all who visited and shared this amazing time with us.
In our first year, we brought more than 35 projects to life, and helped many more real lives connect with art.
The arts have a unique power to bring people together, share stories, increase wellbeing and grow as a community.
We hire space, run exhibitions and work as mentors and consultants.
Mental is a platform for the community to connect, supported by a variety of innovative programs and events.
Our mission is to provide as much access to the arts and its benefits as possible - to make anything achievable by providing space and support for all kinds of arts-related things: visual art, music, digital content, performance, writing and design.
Through our resources and network, we can provide mentoring and project consultancy to any stage of the creative process and work with all levels of experience, age and ability.
The shop features products made by us and the artists we work with.
Support what we do
Increasing access to the arts is a key goal. Support us to deliver that.
Mental is on a mission. It was started by a mission to help one person with a disability work in their local community through art. We have seen our mission grow into a regional launchpad for emerging artists and a hub for community connection. Your support ensures we can continue to grow!
