The Dax Centre’s Public Programs are a vital part of the Centre’s engagement with audiences, fostering a greater awareness and understanding of mental health and wellbeing using art through creative and innovative programs. Using diverse and innovative programs, new and existing audiences can participate in onsite, offsite and website programs that engage, inspire, educate and enhance well informed public discussion. The programs are varied and topical and are developed to meet the needs of a broad range of audiences and provide memorable and stimulating experiences.
The Dax Centre’s Public Programs endeavour to build a national and international reputation for high quality research and be at the fore of museological practices. The programs are presented by experts in their fields and are aligned closely with the Centre’s Exhibition program. Public Programs can be formal and informal and may include panel and public talks, forums, film screenings, performances and artist talks. The Dax Centre also seeks active partnerships when developing its programs with aligned public and cultural institutions, non-government organisations, community organisations and agencies.
