The Deco Arts Project

The Wheatbelt Health Network has been funded by the Department of Communities to deliver 10 inclusive 2-day workshops across the Wheatbelt. The objective of this project is to create closer community connection for socially isolated individuals, as well as educate and train them in a new skill that can be used for personal therapeutic means or for making a livelihood. As the project progresses, this page will house the project outputs including photographs of the workshops, traveling exhibitions, links to artists, and a How To guide for running your own inclusive workshop.

For more information on the Deco Arts project, contact the Northam branch at 08 9622 4444.
