1. Fay Wilkinson, a Registered Expressive Arts Practitioner, worked with seniors in two long-term care homes to explore depression through expressive arts making.
    A video snapshot of this work was taken to a variety of community groups. The audience members were asked to spontaneously respond to what they had seen through their own art making which was also captured on film.
    All the artwork you will see in this video was created either by the senior participants (part one) or members of the community (part 2).
