Abstract

The Rural Art Roadshow was designed to build community resilience, reduce stigma and promote a positive image of mental health in rural Tasmania, Australia by show-casing a travelling exhibition of art submitted by Tasmanian community members affected by mental illness. The project combined the benefits of art as therapy, and the art show as a community event to increase social inclusion, and facilitate positive conversations about mental health.
