About Friends of the Arts Inclusive Resource

Founded in 2017 FAIR is dedicated to making the arts inclusive and accessible. 

 

Originally our mission was to deliver low cost, high quality art classes to the marginalised, particularly those living with mental health issues. We achieved this by visiting each other’s studios and teaching what we knew to each other so that “Each student becomes the teacher and each teacher, the student.”

Since 2020 FAIRs team of dedicated volunteers have brought the community together in an annual art exhibition and event that have become an extravaganza celebrating the arts whilst raising resources for mental health charities.

 

2020’s Kindness Emerging, 2021’s Reflections on Resilience and 2022’s Wild & Free showcased local emerging and established artists in fun and innovative ways.

 

For this year’s mental health week, FAIR takes a breath to reclaim their roots and will be offering a year long calendar of events and workshops.​

Launching Mental Health Week Sat, 05/10/24 with FAIR Art Fusion @ The Fib. Join us to sample five art making workshops, examples of what will be on the calendar 2024-2025. ​

Closing Mental Health Week, FAIR will host Chrysalis @ Clancy's

Sat, 12/10/24 with performances by FAIR dancers, Ben Catley and The Witchy Djypsies. 

Throughout 2024 and 2025 FAIR Art Fusion @ The Fib will run 2-5pm first Saturday of every month. Tickets and calendar live soon.
