Meet our Mood B'Roo Artist, Daniel Stricker

Artist and technician Daniel Stricker joins us to talk about the inspiration and mechanics behind our Mental Health Month Installation.

This October, in celebration of Mental Health Month, we invite you to join us for a conversation with Daniel Stricker, Australian musician and digital artist and inspirational creator of our Mood B'Roo installation screen.

We understand there is often a lot of stigma around talking about our feelings - our hope is that this installation encourages our community to open up about their mental health, check in on those we care for and help people find the resources they need. It’s also a chance to have a greater understanding of how the installation works and why we need to have open conversations about Mental Health.

Daniel will be joining us for two days in October, we hope you can join us. Book now through Partner Portal as seats are limited.

Wednesday 11 October

12-12:30pm, Tower Three South Lobby 

Wednesday 25 October

12-12:30pm, Tower Two South Lobby

About Mental Health Month

Mental Health Month is celebrated each year October in NSW. This month encourages all of us to think about our mental health and wellbeing, regardless of whether we may have a lived experience of mental illness or not. It also gives us the opportunity to understand the importance of good mental health in our everyday lives and encourages help seeking behaviours when needed. 

In 2023, the theme for Mental Health Month is We all Have a Role to Play.
This Mental Health Month, think about ways you connect with the people around you. Together, we can work towards a world free from mental health stigma.  What role will you play?

Whether it is supporting a colleague, running a community event or educating yourself about the importance of mental health language, everyone can play a role.

Together we can create a safe place for those living with, supporting others and receiving mental health support.
