The Candle Melbourne’ is a community based project created by Media Director; Sasha and PACFA Psychotherapist; Giovanna. The Candle was inspired by engaging with various Melbourne artists from an array of disciplines expressing a desire to share their experiences of Mental Health, barriers of help seeking, financial instability, toxic set culture environments and COVID-19 setbacks.

‘The Candle Melbourne’ is an initiative intended to bring awareness to Mental Health in the arts scene by providing artists a platform through Instagram and Podcasting, to express their own relationship with Mental Health and working within the arts space through a series of interviews. Interviews will be ethically conducted to ensure that the voices of artists are being heard in a safe setting, from Film Makers to Poets.
