FORTHCOMING GEM “ARTS & HEALTH” FUNDRAISER
Artists are stereotyped for having to suffer in order to follow their passion. All students and professionals, regardless of their industry, struggle in their own way. It is a matter of understanding the struggle and tackling the obstacles effectively. This may not come naturally to everyone and may result in frustration, negative attitudes and ultimately, emerging talented young artists give up.
GEMAH is an International Arts & Health Program initiated by GEM Connect Pty Ltd (GEM) Australia, to be run in emerging economies and specifically developed to support emerging artists. In 2019 GEMAH starts in Karachi, Pakistan, well aligned with the Karachi Biennial Art Festival and will then work its way around the globe.
Based on previous experience of similar programs, we believe that GEMAH will guide these young and powerful artists and engage them in their purpose and guide them through one or a series of goals, where the results will be profound. The key part of GEMAH is in providing emerging young artists with tools that build overall resilience – as well as those practical skills necessary to develop their natural talent and to become confident and self-sufficient.
With the money we aim to raise at our annual Sydney Fundraiser, we continue to coach these young leaders and reach out to more emerging young leaders. Our goal is to support and empower more and more young people, especially those that are are driven to see their world around them as different to lead their own lives. In this way, GEM is a New Social Health Movement, working with all walks of life to promote health and well-being.
