Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre (HBNC) is calling for applications from artists whose work can be displayed on or near the 'Wellness Wall' of our upcoming Tree House Urangan Community Wellness Centre (“Centre”).

The Centre, managed by HBNC,  is an evolving new space in Hervey Bay to support community members’ positive wellbeing through a holistic ‘Wellness Hub’. 

An integral part of the Centre is the Wellness Wall – an acknowledgement of the research showing that Arts engagement significantly improves the mental well-being of participants.

The Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre has been successful in receiving a Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) grant for the purposes of incorporating an Artist in Residence program in the new Centre.

The new Centre, adjacent to the Hervey Bay Botanical Gardens in Urangan is currently ‘under construction' for refurbishing and expansion of the Urangan Community Centre with an anticipated opening in late 2021.

So read through and fill in the forms below to participate in this program.
