Mental Health, skateboards, artists and the Gold Coast. Paul Balfe and Pennybridge Creative have created a special event on the Gold Coast with proceeds going to Never Not Creative.

20+ artists from around the Gold Coast have been invited to take part in visualizing their mental health on a 70s era skateboard in the hopes that we can normalize mental health in the creative industry and beyond. All proceeds will go to helping Never Not Creative. We’ll also be donating proceeds to those affected by the recent devastating floods.

The skateboards will be auctioned off in a silent online auction going live on October 1st.

If you're in the Gold Coast, you can attend the exhibition at 20b Fifth Avenue, Palm Beach, QLD 4221 from 4pm to 10pm. Register for tickets here.
