When

Thursday 20 February from 6pm to 9pm

How does colour and art define a space? How can colour and art empower the mental state of a resident, an employee or even a patient to improve their rehabilitation time?

“The effects of art and colour on the mind in design” delves into the powers of art and how important it is to incorporate it from the beginning when creating any type of space, whether it be residential, corporate or commercial.

3 speakers will deliver valuable information on how to achieve the right artistic:

Amanda Harriss, Operations Manager - Division of Medicine and Chair of The Art Committee for The Royal North Shore Hospital will deliver a report of how art represents a crucial component to the wellbeing of all who visit or work within the hospital environment.

Natalie Slessor, Head of Customer and Product Futures at Lendlease and as one of Australia’s few social psychologists specialising in the built environment, Natalie will talk about the psychology behind art and colours how people will respond to it in leisure and work and recovery.

Tim Elwin, Photographer and Founder of Print For Print, a social initiative which donates 50% of all profits to installing free art into public hospitals will not only share his process of creating art that calms the mind and inspires the soul, but give a firsthand account of its powers after a near-death accident in late 2018 left with a future of living with pain and a disability.

Join us for an evening of education, exhibition, drinks and canapes.
