LIVIN (est. 2013) has made it their mission to encourage the community to speak up about mental health, offering vital support services and advice so that nobody has to suffer in silence. In teaming up with LIVIN, Robina Town Centre hopes to help spread their message even further.
In a first for both the charity and shopping Centre, Collective Minds – An Exhibition by LIVIN x Robina Town Centre will be revealed to the public on Thursday 12th September, coinciding with R U OK?Day and in preparation for Queensland Mental Health Week (5th – 13th October).
The pop-up exhibition at Robina Town Centre will shine a light on mental health by using photography as the catalyst for a public conversation, in an attempt to make mental illness more visible, tangible and better understood within the local community.
More than 20 emerging and celebrated photographers from the Gold Coast and interstate have pledged their support to the cause, exploring and depicting mental health through their own lens.
Photography luminaries such as Sean Scott, Trent Mitchell and Luke Marsden will feature in the curated exhibition, alongside talented budding shutterbugs as young as 14 years old, who all have their own unique interpretation of mental health to share through their chosen piece of work.
These pieces will be available to purchase on the dedicated website www.collectiveminds.com.au via an online silent auction running throughout the duration of the exhibition. All money raised will go directly to LIVIN, which will allow them to continue to expand their support network throughout the Gold Coast and Australia via their LIVINWell program.
