In October 2019, 34 women artists of the Yarra Ranges came together at Kapi Art Space in a magnificent exhibition of over 50 works for Mental Health Week. Each of these strong women had used their art in some way to help them with their mental health and wellbeing and each told her compelling story of Endurance in art and words.

Partially funded by Yarra Ranges Council and funded and supported by Heather Bradbury Design and many many hours of Kapi Art Space volunteer work, the exhibition was viewed by over 600 people went for 10 days. It featured adult and young artist’s People’s Choice prizes and an Opening Event where artists came together in celebration and sharing of story.

Kapi Art Space is now compiling these amazing works and stories of resilience into a beautiful and inspiring coffee table book and we hope you can support this remarkable project. We are now pre-selling (CLICK BELOW) copies of the book for $25 and all profits from the sale of the book will be reinvested by Kapi Art Space to deliver future arts based mental health and wellbeing programs across the region.

Visitors to the Kapi Art Space during the Endure 2019 Exhibition were so touched by the works and the stories that they commented:
