Navigating the Labyrinth of Mental Health
in Gladstone this November

This November the community is encouraged to come together to build a Labyrinth for mental health. An allocation of 2000 bricks made from recycled milk bottles will be used and are available to purchase to help the build. Local café Steam & Cedar will be selling them throughout the month, as well as Coastline branches or online HERE.

The build kicks off at 10am on Saturday, November 21, with a BBQ breaky available, and coffee flowing. Following the build, the Labyrinth will be in place in the Gladstone Memorial park for a week. Visitors can walk the mind-maze and take time to reflect, meditate, or simply clear their mind.

The following Saturday, November 28, a Mental Health Market will start from 5:30 with an outdoor cinema screening of Bowie’s 90s classic, The Labyrinth from 8pm. Entry is by donation, so bring a picnic and something comfy to sit on.

Proceeds from the event will go towards the Macleay Valley Arts Council, Life Education Australia, and the Movember Foundation.
