In Australia, every 3.5 hours someone takes their own life. For every person that does, another 20 people attempt to do so.
Interior Stylist Aimee Tarulli (Archer Interiors) and Esther Navarro-Orejon (The Project Agency) together with 27 Australian artists are aiming to open up the conversation surrounding mental health and the stigma associated with the issue by auctioning 27 pieces of original artwork in an online auction starting this Thursday 21st June.
The aim is to raise $50,000 for Livin – a mental health initiative educating young people on the importance of mental health, arming them with the tools to tackle mental health challenges.
Through Aimee’s personal loss of close friends and the duo’s close relationship with the art world, ‘NoPeace in Quiet’ a charity art auction was developed. 100% of the proceeds from the auction will go to activating the LivinWell program in schools around the country.
The national online auction goes live on Thursday 21 June at 7.30pm and concludes on Sunday 1stJuly.
The artwork will be available to view over three days at Format Framing, 51-57 Cubitt Street, Cremorne, Victoria.
