A group of local musicians have banded together to raise awareness of mental health issues in the community and spread the message that ‘it’s okay to not be okay’.
The Project 365 initiative - which has the backing of Wangaratta’s Grit and Resilience Program and strong support from local business R&R Quality Homes - has pulled together 14 locals with varying degrees of musical experience to create the band U Can Cry. Since their first rehearsal in May 2021, the group have been working towards putting on a stage production at the Wangaratta Performing Arts and Convention Centre a year since the first meeting - hence the name Project 365.
Project 365 aims to not only give these passionate musicians a creative and social outlet, but to start important conversations in the community about mental health and wellbeing. It is the brainchild of Wangaratta resident and music lover, Peter Rourke, and emerged from his own mental health challenges. “It is a lot to pull together, and it will be a challenge, but for people who suffer from mental health issues, getting out of bed is a challenge, so pulling this together is not really a struggle at all.” – Peter Rourke.
Proceeds raised from this performance will be donated to the Into Our Hands Foundation. Into Our Hands invests in projects and initiatives aimed at building the capacity, strength, cohesiveness and wellbeing of communities across North East Victoria.
