10 Dec 2015 Multicultural Youth Development Project’s (MYDP) quarterly newsletter summer edition

CC 2015Cultural Creations is a performance-based programme designed to give young people the

opportunity to investigate mental health and wellbeing topics in a controlled, informative and

engaging manner. The group performed on the 10th of December at Wollongong Youth

Services, acting out a script with a particular focus on body image.



The Cultural Creations’ team creates its scripts based on the issues raised - and the specific

triggers for mental health difficulties faced - by young people. The programme is a partnership

between STARTTS (The NSW Service for the Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture and

Trauma Survivors), Illawarra Multicultural Services (IMS), SCARF (Strategic Community

Assistance to Refugee Families) Headspace Wollongong, Wollongong City Council -Youth

Services, Mind Blank and the MYDP.
