Slow down and ground yourself in the MCA’s new weekly wellbeing program, Art Flow.

Take a break from your day or use your lunch hour to create space for reflection and to refresh your mind. Art can be a powerful source of wellbeing, and our Artist Educators will guide you through an artwork to experience it, and perhaps yourself, in new ways.

Art Flow is a 45-minute session that invites you to contemplate art and your emotional response in a calm and supportive environment, opening you up to flowing through the rest of your day.

Art Flow has been developed over the past two years by MCA Artist Educators, the MCA Public Programs team and The Mind Room, a health, wellbeing and performance psychology community.
