Following on from the ABC television premiere of documentary film The Show Must Go On, Film Art Media launched a national Wellness Roadshow on Wednesday 9 October at Arts Centre Melbourne as part of Mental Health Week.
The roadshow was launched by The Hon Martin Foley MP, Victorian Minister for Mental Health, Equality and Creative Industries to an audience of entertainment industry leaders, changemakers and arts workers. The panel was moderated by Chloe Dallimore (Federal President Equity) and included Ben Steel (writer/director), Tracy Margieson (Arts Wellbeing Collective) and Julia Edwards (Entertainment Assist).
The first official Wellness Roadshow event was at NSW Parliament House in Sydney on Tuesday 29 October with a screening of the film, followed on by discussions with a panel including musician Dean Ray, writer/director Ben Steel, psychologist Julie Crabtree and Entertainment Assist’s Julia Edwards. The next stop on the wellness roadshow will be Adelaide on Tuesday 19 November 2019, with additional dates and cities to be announced.
The Wellness Roadshow launch and the subsequent tour would not be possible without the generous support of Film Victoria, Creative Victoria, Screen Australia, Stage and Screen, MEAA, Sidney Myer Fund, Andyinc Foundation, The Arts Wellbeing Collective, Entertainment Assist and Village Roadshow Limited.
In addition the Sydney event was made possible by additional support from WIFT NSW, MEAA, Casting Guild of Australia, Screen Producers Australia, Australian Writers’ Guild and Australian Screen Sound Guild.
