For the past three years, CAN’s Catalyst Fund has enjoyed the support of the Mental Health Commission of WA to offer a funding category specifically for community arts projects that enhance the mental health and wellbeing of communities.

The partnership enabled CAN to fund 29 projects across the State in a variety of art forms and produced some incredible community arts projects, including Same, Same…Different?, photography workshops and an exhibition coordinated by Pride Midwest, as well as Althea Gordon’s Mind the Change theatre based workshops and the Budadee Foundation’s Nullagine community mural painting of country and culture.

CAN thanks the Commission for its generous support of the Catalyst fund and all the great outcomes that it produced. Although the partnership is not continuing in 2016, CAN will continue to pursue opportunities for more specialist funding categories in the future.
