Participatory arts are at the centre of the Arts and Health projects in Orange and play a significant role in the development of major installations at the facility.

With Mental Health leading the way, these projects provide a broad spectrum of people with opportunities to participate in projects that are uplifting and meaningful while facilitating a sense of pride and community.

All of the participatory arts projects have included numerous mental health clients and staff, aboriginal artists, local and volunteer artists.

A special thank you to the dedicated artists, the countless volunteers from the community, the staff & consumers of the Orange Health Service, the O’Brien Centre and all the organisations who have contributed to these projects.
