Creative energy bringing youth together

01 Jul 2021

headspace Midland in Western Australia are using funds raised from The Push-Up Challenge in 2021 to engage local Noongar Boodjar artist Jade Doleman.

Jade will work alongside the Midland Youth Reference Group and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people accessing headspace Midland services to design and paint a mural.

The mural will be located in the youth space where groups, social drop-in and events are held, to help make the space more inclusive, youth friendly and culturally appropriate.

"We are so grateful and overwhelmed by the money raised from The Push-Up Challenge. The money raised is going to have long-lasting positive affects on our ability to provide an inclusive and culturally appropriate service where young people feel welcome and engaged.'" headspace Midland
