Vincents Tree Project

Wellington

Vincents Art Workshop is once again celebrating Mental Health Awareness Week with a collaborative project. This year's theme is "Connect with Nature" and Vincents' artists and tutors are creating decorated leaves to be installed as an art tree in Vincents Gallery.

Participants from Vincents' outreach programme at Te Whare o Matairangi mental health ward at Wellington Hospital are also contributing to the project. Visitors to the gallery will also get the opportunity to decorate their own leaf to add to the tree.

Start times vary for each day. Please see our website for more details.
