Future Reset

What is the Future Arts Movement?

Future Arts Movement is a series of workshops, mentorships and events for young people aged 12-25 years that connects them to artists and arts organisations throughout Gippsland. 

These experiences will focus on play, learning and social connection through creative activities, showcasing young people’s artworks and bringing generations of young people together. 

Future Arts Movement is run by Regional Arts Victoria and is part of a Vic Health initiative called Future Reset: Young People, Arts and Mental Wellbeing

Future Reset has engaged nine organisations across the state to create events, installations and other creative projects that will ignite social connection among Victoria’s young people across 2023 and 2024. We’re passionate about enhancing mental wellbeing through art and creativity – with young people leading the change! 

Having identified the Gippsland region as the focus of our Future Reset project, we’re now calling on young people based in Gippsland to play a key role in co-designing creative projects that can respond to the needs and voices of their own communities. 

Introducing the Gippslandia Mentorship Program

For our second project as part of Future Arts Movement, we’re teaming up with quarterly magazine Gippslandia to deliver the Gippslandia Mentorship Program, providing 14 mentorships and skills development opportunities for young people aged 15-25 years in the Gippsland region.

Aimed at developing their skills in journalism or art forms complimentary to journalism, such as writing, graphic design, photography, and illustration, our 14 young artists will be mentored by Gippslandia contributors to help develop their material for publication in a future edition of the magazine.  

Participants will be paid to meet online with their mentors over the course of three months from September to December 2023 online.  

You can now apply to be part of Gippslandia Mentorship Program, with applications closing midnight Sunday 10 September 2023
