Event purpose and wellness experience

To provide an opportunity for women from the North Burnett, Bridges Health & Community Care will host a series of 'wellness from women' events.

Bridges will host a creative day that includes movement, visual art, writing, salsa and drumming. You can find more information in the event brochure.

We want to encourage women to 'tag a mate' to concentrate on wellbeing in a way that's fun an energising. Your 'mate' might be a friend, colleague, client or supplier, or even an acquaintance.

The events are for women from the North Burnett region who have been doing it tough due to drought, flood, fire or other adverse events. They are part of the Bridges 'Tag a Mate, Take a Break' program in the North Burnett region, to promote wellness and self-care in the community.

The Queensland Government funds the initiative through its 'Tackling Adversity Through Integrated Care' (TRAIC) program.

Bridges will provide all activities, lunch and refreshments at no cost to you. Please note that participants in an event must provide their own transport to and from the venues.

Event workshops and activities

Each women's wellness event features workshops led by dynamic artists.

The workshops involve movement, art and story. They provide an opportunity for you to nurture your wellness through a creative process.
