Minister’s Welcome

PROGRAM FOREWORD Welcome to the 2017 Positive Mindset Creative Arts Festival. By taking part in today’s festival, you are helping to promote good mental health and well-being in young people and raising awareness in the wider community. Initiatives such as the Positive Mindset Creative Arts Festival highlight the importance of fostering and embracing good mental health and well-being, and encourage children and young people to seek out help if they require it. The Government is pleased to support the Festival, now in its third year. Our partners, Queensland University of Technology, Logan Together, headspace, Griffith University, Children’s Health Queensland and the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital, Pop Up Radio Australia and the Queensland Academies Creative Industries have also played a significant role in supporting today’s festival, and I thank them for that. Best wishes to every student taking part today, and thank you for playing your part in promoting positive mental health in our community.

Message from the Executive Director Welcome to Country

Professor David Crompton Executive Director MSAMHS

We encourage our children to play, not only does this help develop their learning and language but also develop their cognitive, and emotional strength. Somehow, in our modern and busy lives as we move from childhood to youth and into adulthood, we sometimes lose our ability to play. Being creative is an excellent way to reconnect with this important skill. Our youth “play� when they are creative, and importantly, they learn. Today, you will see the themes of the festival, Create, Connect and Chat come to life. At the Festival you see in action how talking about mental health concerns reduces stigma and importantly increases help-seeking behaviour in our children.

Aunty Heather Indigenous Elder

Now in its third year, the community in the Metro South Health region has rallied behind the Positive Mindset Creative Arts Festival, and we look forward to welcoming new partners in 2018. Aunty Heather is a proud Murri (Aboriginal) woman. She was born into the Hooper Family at St George and raised in Charleville on the bank of the Warrego River. As a younger person, she worked in the outback for 27 years on cattle and sheep stations. Aunty Heather is a social worker and Indigenous Cultural Consultant with the Child and Youth Mental Health Service at Metro South Health and has lived experience as the carer of someone with a mental illness. She held key positions in a number of community organisations and believes that everyone must develop an understanding of all cultures that make up the island we call our country of Australia.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF COUNTRY The Positive Mindset Creative Arts Festival gratefully acknowledges that Indigenous Australians are the first people and Traditional Owners of this land. We pay our respects and tribute to all Indigenous people, past, present and emerging. We recognise and celebrate their continuing spiritual and cultural connection to the land. We also acknowledge the significant role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people make within our creative and human services community. METRO SOUTH HEALTH

Festival Director’s Message A bi-monthly “Positive Mindset Zine” will be launched this year. It is a mental health promotion zine to be produced by secondary students with contributions from carers, consumers and clinicians. It will also keep all the schools and students updated about the Festival throughout the year.

Picture from Left: Julia Phan, Adam Lo, Courtney Chan, Gurjeet Kaur, Donna Foxwell

Welcome to the third Positive Mindset Creative Arts Festival in 2017. The Festival is growing bigger and better each year and continues to nurture and develop the capacity of our community to recognise, understand and respond to mental health needs and addiction issues in our young people. Our Festival is open to students in all school levels and sectors, including state, Catholic, independent, distance and alternative schools across the Metro South Health region. This year, we have introduced the ‘wildcard’ option for schools from outside the region to participate in the Festival. Apart from access to the Youth Mental Health First Aid training and mental health resources for all schools that participate in the Festival, just like the previous years, winning schools will now have access to the Teen Mental Health First Aid program for their students as well.

In 2017, we have consolidated our many partnerships and developed new ones as well. We are also introducing the inaugural Positive Mindset Champion Awards, which consists of a school category and a community organisation category, in order to recognise great initiatives and good works being carried out in our community. On reflection, the past three years have been a roller coaster ride of challenges and triumphs in creating this Festival from the ground up. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to work with so many amazing people, particularly the young people themselves, who we built this Festival for, as well as Donna Foxwell, the project officer who joined me this year and was such an invaluable support to me. Thank you to everyone who has played a part in the Positive Mindset Creative Arts Festival. The foundation has been laid and may we continue to sow the seeds of positive mental health in our young people.

Following the Grand Final, we will be visiting the participating schools again to maintain our Adam Lo great connections and conversations. We will Festival Director also be presenting certificates to all the Occupational Therapist participants and finalists. METRO SOUTH HEALTH

Festival Guest Performers

LEAH LEVER At only 15 years old, Leah’s young soprano voice is one to watch, and listen to! As a young girl she was already able to sing in tune and she was drawn to the beauty of classical music. She can sing all styles of music but her heart lies in the classics ranging from opera to musicals and gentle ballads from the 1940s to 1960s. She has performed on some of the biggest stages in Australia including the Brisbane Convention Centre and Twin Towns. Leah is dedicated to community service, singing regularly for charity and fundraising events, the elderly, and for children with special needs. In 2017, Leah was named the Young Citizen of the Year in her home city of Redland in Queensland. Leah is currently being mentored by Mirusia through Mirusia Productions, and in 2016 released her debut EP ‘Dream Catcher’ which has already had a lot of success. Her dream is to one day tour internationally, but wherever life does take her, Leah will always maintain her humility and community spirit.

SARAH ENGSTROM Sarah have been playing and experimenting with music since she was 6 years old and has loved performing and making music her whole life. It was when Sarah first started playing acoustic guitar that she discovered her passion as a singer-songwriter, composing her original songs and performing them to any audience who would listen. After beginning to regularly perform at local markets and cafés in Brisbane, Sarah was asked to play at the Sunlit and Twilight Sounds Music Festivals. She has organised multiple gigs performing with her band, SEB, in order to raise money for charity. She hopes to continue creating music which her audiences can relate to and enjoy.
