This year Rosetta Life celebrates 21 years of delivering pioneering arts projects across a range of health settings.
Participants find voice and re-discover balance in lives knocked sideways by illness. In this process, people can regain self-esteem, reducing the anxiety and depression experienced through illness. Involvement enables participants to be witnessed and their stories heard and helps contribute to community strategies for resilience.
The impact we make
“Incredibly beautiful… I learnt so much about what life is about because you’ve got such integrity in what you’re saying. It was mind-blowing for me to see you showing what you could do.”
