Artstop program

playme220114lrj_012_dunn14Artstop offers a safe, supportive space for people living with mental illness to learn from professional artists run by the Brunswick Uniting Church.

Where: The Olive Way Drop In Centre, 212 Sydney Road Brunswick

When: Wednesdays

Artstop are a group of artists from Brunswick that make art on a Wednesday 10am – 12.30pm at The Olive Way.  Many of us come from Stewart Lodge and Brunswick Lodge Supported Residential Services and some of us are visitors to The Olive Way Drop In Centre.

We have been making art at The Olive Way with Arts Access Victoria since January 2011. We have worked with sculpture, stop motion animation, sound installation and film making. This year we are continuing with poetry, painting, drawing and sculpture.

Linda Studena, Tanya Arman and Adam Buckland are local acclaimed artists who lead us through our Wednesdays of art making. They create a professional space for our skills to be recognised and strengthened. To learn more about the SRS Studios staff, click here.
