Access2Arts and mindshare are partnering to present the mindshare poetry awards in 2015.
A re-imagining of mindshare’s popular Open Your Mind competition, the mindshare awards invites poets and writers with a lived experience of mental illness to submit new work.
Join Access2Arts and mindshare on Wednesday 17 June 2015 for the launch of the 2015 awards, for a reading by poet Sandy Jeffs and an afternoon tea.
Sandy will be presenting two workshops for writers with a lived experience of mental illness on Thursday 18 June 2015. Participants in Sandy’s workshop will creatively develop ways of sharing their lived experience of mental illness through different forms of poetry.
Deaf Arts Network South Australia (DANSA) aims to support, promote and develop arts opportunities for Deaf people and provide professional development and networking opportunities for Deaf artists based in SA. DANSA also supports the arts sector by providing information on Deaf Awareness, advocate for more Auslan interpreted arts events and can assist by promotion to the Deaf community.
