Broken to Brilliant is starting 2020 with an exciting and ever increasing calendar of events.
Western Suburbs Rotary clubs has invited Broken to Brilliant to several events throughout the year. We are looking forward to growing this partnership into the future.
New on March 1, is the Gratitude Ride which combines the health benefits of connecting with nature, animals and the psychological benefits of practising gratitude for all the positive things we have in our lives. All donations will be given to Broken to Brilliant.
May is Domestic and Family Violence Prevention month and looks like it will eventful. A number of events are scheduled to keep the Broken to Brilliant team busy.
The Art workshops in May are for domestic survivors as they tell their stories through their art. The intent is to encourage healing and social inclusion and to provide lasting positive mental health beneﬁts.
The Art Show looks exciting. Domestic and Family Violence Survivors (DFVS) will be sharing their art with the community. The aim is promote community understanding about DFVS and give the artists conﬁdence as they share their experiences with the community members.
