The City of Canterbury Bankstown will shine a light on mental wellness, with two events scheduled for later this month.

The Bankstown Wellness Festival will be held at Paul Keating Park on Tuesday 24 April (10am-2pm), and the Art for Wellness Program will begin at the Arts Centre on Friday 20 April (10am-noon).

The Wellness Festival, organised by the Bankstown Recovery and Support Network, will showcase and increase access to mental health services available in Canterbury-Bankstown. The free event is open to residents of all ages and promises to have something for everyone: 

  • Live entertainment, including performer Alex Hadchiti;
  • Inclusive activities, including group Zumba, face painting and smoothie bike mixing;
  • Information stalls;
  • Food; and
  • Health checks.

Mayor Khal Asfour said it’s vital residents know there is help available to them.

"The Bankstown Recovery and Support Network has more than 150 members committed to supporting mental wellbeing in our City and many will be at the Wellness Festival," Mayor Asfour said.

"It’s important our community use this opportunity to connect with people and services around them."

For more information on the Bankstown Wellness Festival, call Council’s Access and Inclusion Officer on 9707 9857 or visit

The Art for Wellness Program, a 12-week workshop at Bankstown Arts Centre, will run until Friday 6 July.

Professional visual artist and facilitator, Rhonda Dee, said participants will learn to use art to regulate their moods.

"Art-making supports resiliency, empowerment and personal growth," Ms Dee said.

"Creativity is our most powerful resource for change as, by practicing new skills and increasing curiosity, growth and a greater sense of well-being is achieved.

"You don’t need any previous experience – everyone will be welcomed, inspired and encouraged!"

The program is suitable for residents aged 18 years and over, and costs $20. As places are limited, call Council’s Arts Centre Director on 9707 9989 prior to registration. For more information, visit
