Beyond THE STIGMA Gala 2017

Beyond Blue’s vision is that
everyone achieves their best possible mental health

While Beyond Blue’s primary focus is on the needs of people affected by depressionanxiety and suicide, we also believe that a better understanding of what we mean by mental health and how to achieve it will help everyone in Australia reach their full potential. This will also contribute to the prevention of mental health conditions, and support people who have experienced these conditions to get as well as they can and lead full and contributing lives.

Having social connections, good personal relationships and being part of a community are vital to maintaining good mental health and contribute to people’s recovery, should they become unwell.
However, if you feel that you may be affected by depression or anxiety remember they are treatable conditions and effective treatments are available. The earlier you seek support, the better.

** I’m happy to announce that Soul Stories will be returning this year to be a small part of this incredible fundraising event. With an open heart, Soul Stories will be offering a beautiful selection of creations to be a part of their inspiring auction night. As aways, l wish them so much love and success on their inspiring night.  xt

The Rose Street Store ~ Pop Up

Heading back to the beginning – well kinda sorta…
The Rose St. Artists’ Market was the first place where Soul Stories made its debut appearance in Australia! Since then I’ve been running around trying to find the best places and spaces to promote and grow Soul Stories in an authentic way.
A few years later, I’ve found myself hanging back with The Rose St Artist Gang, but with a bit of a twist…yayyyy.
Stayed up all night with the kitties, prepping stock for their funky pop up store out at Highpoint.
I’m rarely out that direction – so hopefully Soul Stories can reach out to a few new hearts and souls that wouldn’t cross my path otherwise.
Will post more info below if you’re interested as a creator or a customer!! Hope to see some friendly faces down there soon… Xt

“A little piece of Rose Street has popped up out west.
Our first concept store is now open at Highpoint Shopping Centre and features an ever-changing showcase of work from our market makers. We’re super excited to introduce a new audience to the fabulous artists and designers Melbourne has to offer.
The pop-up is open for 3 months and can be found on Level 2, opposite T2.”
