    Mitcham Council displays artwork by Resthaven clients

    Colourful artwork made from thousands of bottle tops, created by Resthaven Community Respite Services clients, is now on display at the Mitcham Council Chambers.

    ‘The exhibition aimed to blend rubbish, recyclables, and old items that were no longer loved or needed, with a healthy dose of imagination.’

    ‘Clients rose to the occasion, and delivered some very eye-catching, thought-provoking, and entertaining pieces.’

    ‘Everyone who participated in the project has a great life story to tell, and what they created was testament to that.’

    ‘Following the exhibition, we contacted the Mitcham Council to see if they would like to display a selection of the artworks, for members of the general public to enjoy. We were delighted when they said “yes”!’

    ‘The installation ignited enthusiasm and pride for all those who worked on the project.’

    ‘We encourage you to head over to the Mitcham Council Chambers to check it out.’
