Wondering what to write? Think about when you’re feeling really down, or alone … what would you like someone to say to you?
We encourage greeting cards for all cultural celebrations like Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Ōmisoka.
For ideas on what to write, book your place in a free card-making and writing workshop at Ivanhoe Library and Cultural Hub. Other card-making workshops are happening at Rosanna, Whittlesea, and ILCH Makerspace.
This is the third year that Yarra Plenty Regional Library has supported the delivery of cards to Austin Hospital Acute Psychiatric Unit, supported by Banyule Council’s Arts & Culture team. The project began as “December Cards for Psych Wards” conceived by Heidi Everett, local artist and mental health advocate. She was inspired by similar projects in the United States. December was chosen because many vulnerable people feel isolation more acutely during the holiday season.
