Join Australia Council for the Arts for a panel discussion addressing the question: What would it take to ensure that all Australians are living a fully contributing life – not only surviving, but thriving?
This panel is part of a bigger program of work with a strategic and practical approach focusing on opportunities to embed arts and creativity in government policy responses to support mental health and wellbeing.
The learnings from this panel will help inform one or more policy proposals to be presented to government later in the year.
The panellists will include Professor Jill Bennett, Founding Director of The Big Anxiety Research Centre and of the Big Anxiety Festival, Rachel Green, CEO of SANE Australia, Janine Mohamed, CEO of the Lowitja Institute and Jeremy Thorpe, Chief Economist at PwC and Board Member at Flourish Australia.
The discussion will be chaired by Feyi Akindoyeni, Partner and Melbourne Office Head, Communications, at SEC Newgate.
Friday 25 March
In person at Hanson Dyer Hall, University of Melbourne
