Creative outlets contribute to personal resilience, balance in life and individual impact.

Public Art

'A Living Entity' project was a mural launched by a waste free picnic that sought community input on the theme ‘Detritis’, as set out by the Surf Coast Shire’s Seed Funding Grant program. The mural took inspiration from community engagement sessions and was designed by artists Clare Walton and Wadawurrung traditional owner Billy-Jay O’Toole with creative input from Maxine. The launch picnic included a Welcome to Country, a Clean Up and a Sustainability Discussion with Grassroots Sustainability.

This video interview about the creation of 'A Living Entity' was produced by the Surf Coast Shire.
