Late last year, we were once again invited to take part in the Joondalup Festival. We collaborated with other community groups and schools from across the City of Joondalup as well as pop-up workshop participants to bring to life a magnificent community art project called Soaring: Field of Flight. The project was on display at Hillarys Boat Harbour and dotted throughout nearby suburbs for the month of March.
The purpose of the art installation was to highlight community resilience, positivity and aspirations for the future in a post-lockdown world. The thirty-wing project took five months to complete and aimed to inspire viewers to spread their wings ready to take on the world, chase adventure and pursue new horizons.
Lisa Kempster, our resident Art Therapist at Community Vision, led the project in which all of our Kingsley Centre and Woodvale Centre art customers participated. We teamed up with our good friend Sean Adamas, a Perth-based visual artist and designer, who guided our customers to design, tape, paint and complete the wings for the spectacular project. Each pair of wings was unique, with intricately painted details and brightly coloured patterns adorning them.
Our Art Therapy program is a favourite among customers and allows them to express their creativity, learn new skills and communicate with peers. When we participate in programs and events outside of Community Vision, it presents the opportunity for our customers to connect with the broader community and bring about a wonderful sense of pride.
At Community Vision, our mission is to create a stronger and more connected community, and what better way to do that than through our enjoyable, engaging and educational Art Therapy program.
