Inspired Minds

Inspired Minds is an Art and Health series developed by McClelland Sculpture Park + Gallery.

The project explores how art and nature can foster positive mental health and wellbeing through a series of experiences designed in collaboration with wellbeing and mental health experts and drawing inspiration from McClelland’s unique connection to art in a bushland environment.

McClelland From Home

McClelland From Home was an education series, offering a variety of thought-provoking and easily accessed activities inspired by McClelland’s extensive collection, exhibitions and unique bushland environment.

The program was initiated in response to McClelland’s closure due to COVID-19 restrictions, as a way to provide learning resources for people confined to their homes. As restrictions ease, MFH continues as a permanent online learning resource for people of all ages to enjoy anywhere, anytime.

We invite you to follow along on Instagram, and then post and share your own creations from the McClelland From Home activities using the hashtag #McClellandFromHome We publish a selection on the @McClellandFromHome online gallery, and participants will have the chance to win some great art materials from our education partner, Micador.
