Art For The Heart

Art for the Heart is an art exhibition that honours the use of creativity as a powerful source of healing and expression during the process of grief after any loss. It offers a space for people to tell their stories of loss, love & hope in new ways and to bring the community together to share the often hidden experiences of grief.
