MISSION & OBJECTIVE
Monash Health is privileged to be one of the few health networks in Australia to have an Arts in Health Program. This is an initiative that seeks external funding for internal projects with the support and endorsement of the EMT and Board.

Through arts practice with clear artistic vision, goals and outcomes that ultimately seek to enhance individual and community health and wellbeing at Monash Health. Arts based approaches have the capacity to enhance healthcare delivery and the built environment through the provision of creative interventions, engagement and community building. Art Beat is about encouraging creativity and making our health environments better places to work and get well in.

We see our Arts and Health program as a key tool in facilitating meaningful professional, organizational and community partnerships. It is also a means of creating a dialogue between the arts sector, clinical services and health administration.

We believe that the health environment should be one where we embrace the prospect of learning creatively how to be healthy. In addition many sources highlight the clear relationship between creativity and wellbeing. Evidence suggests that participatory arts programming in particular can produce and create a measure of individual and community wellbeing. This is a sense of wellbeing derived from the process of engagement, collaboration and belonging. We are proud of our leadership and participation in this area. Programs already established are:

Monash Health Art Collection

Monash Health is the proud custodians of one of the best hospital based Art Collections in Australia. The collection now contains close to 500 items and is particularly strong in post 1980’s Australian art. Although recent donations have expanded the collection significantly into contemporary European printmaking. The collection contains local indigenous art.

Art Space Exhibitions

At Monash Medical Centre, Clayton we have established a designated gallery space with adequate lighting and suitable hanging areas. Here we host a series of curated temporary exhibitions – with 5 different shows each year. Themes that are of particular interest are local communities and CALD groups.

Monash Health Mental Health Art Collection

A Mental Health Competition which is open to all staff, consumers, community and carers is conducted annually In Mental Health Week. This program is in its fifth year. The art acquired through this process is displayed in facilities.

Creating Healthy Environments

Through our program we endeavour to improve public awareness of the impact of the physical environment on our health and well-being. There is a strong body of research that supports the inclusion of artworks, music, views of nature, as well as lighting and wall colour as fundamental elements in health environments that are conducive to building wellbeing and encouraging healing. In turn, this knowledge and awareness helps to support a person-centred modern environment that goes beyond providing dignity and comfort. Professionally guided creative interventions that consider these aspects of the physical environment can make a significant cost effective improvement to the quality of environments and care provided.

The launch of the inaugural Reel Health International Health Short Film Festival (IHSFF) is set to capture the imagination of film makers worldwide and ignite community conversations about the importance of health in our everyday lives.

The festival aims to promote a greater awareness of health related issues effecting individuals and the health industry. Through the power of storytelling and the visual of film, Reel Health provides a platform for people whose voices are not often heard to tell their story.

The Reel Health IHSFF provides you an opportunity to tell your story and encourages film makers to explore the role of health over 15 minutes from behind the lens. Film makers have the chance to win their share of $10,000 worth of prizes across five film categories:

•In This Together
•Get Well Soon
•My Journey
•Your Voice
•Behind The Scenes
All funds raised will go towards the Monash Health Foundation, the fundraising arm of Monash Health -Victoria’s largest public health service.

Share your story or an important message through the Reel Health IHSFF and be involved in the conversation for better health in our community.

The 15 minutes or less film entry submission is open to Australian and international citizens 16 years or older (parental/guardian consent is required for participants under 18 years old).

Entries for submissions close on 30 July 2013.

Films will be judged by a diverse and highly respected panel of industry film makers, health care professionals and health care consumers across August 2013.

Reel Health IHSFF finalists will be notified via email and will be invited to attend the Melbourne launch screening where the category winners will be revealed.

The 2013 inaugural Reel Health International Short Film Festival is run by Monash Health, Victoria’s largest public health service.


ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Message from the Reel Health IHSFF Director Anne Doherty

“Monash Health has developed the Reel Health International Short Film Festival as contemporary representations of health in the media are often unrealistic. I have worked in the health industry for more than 35 years and I am still waiting to meet George Clooney in an emergency department. In my world, Dr House would be sacked, deregistered and probably imprisoned. In the real world, people with ill mental health are not serial killers and death is not glamorised. We want to give a voice to those who are associated with health and have a story to tell.” Film Director and Monash Health Executive Director of Mental Health Anne Doherty.
