Log in Log In An image of ABC Arts week logo with colourful flower on the side Hello australian-broadcasting, Get Happy Making for ABC Arts Week! In its second year, ABC Arts Week is celebrating arts and creativity right across Australia. Research shows the direct benefit to mental health and wellbeing from being engaged in the arts – from playing music in the back shed, to learning to knit, to painting with the kids. This year’s ABC Arts Week theme of “Happy Making” aims to inspire Australians to get creative in whatever way they can. Dive into all things arts across the ABC this week, discover a collection of content highlighting the incredible work of the creative arts communities and be inspired to find a way to express yourself creatively. So, take that pottery class, pick up that sketchpad, or join that local choir! Explore the Arts Week collection on ABC iview complete with the best live performances and fascinating arts documentaries from Australia and around the world. The riveting story of the greatest art fraud case in Australian history is captured in The Whiteley Art Scandal, that takes a rarely granted, behind-the-scenes look at the glamorous and high-stakes world of art dealing on ABC TV and ABC iview. Or there's something for every maker, mover and tinkerer this week in a special episode of Art Works. Join us as we meet creatives from across Australia for insights into their making motivations and some how-to inspiration. They say to write/paint/sing what you know. This Arts Week, Life Matters takes a deep dive into the world of narrative therapy – how can you get creative with your life story and boost your mental health in the process?
