OUR JOURNEY

Upbeat Arts launched in Queensland on World Mental Health Day in 2014. Our programs are created by a team of highly qualified creative leaders with valuable experience, working with marginalised communities. 

Activities include creative writing, song writing and choirs, with research funded by independent organisations including Opera Australia and Wesley Medical Research Institute in Queensland.

Our program leaders build upon the capabilities of participants, encouraging learners to take their own personal journey of growth and development, by growing, developing and nurturing a combination of artistic capabilities and life skills in a caring and safe environment.

OUR MISSION

To engage, educate and empower marginalised communities via tailored arts and cultural programs, creating pathways to wellbeing, education and employment.

OUR VISION

To be the leading provider of inclusive creative programs for positive mental health and wellbeing.
