Live painting with artist Emmanuel Asante

Experience the creative process of an artist first hand, as talented Ghanaian born visual artist, and humanitarian Emmanuel Asante puts paint to canvas live at the upcoming SSI New Beginnings Winter Festival.  

Emmanuel uses his art to share his story. After participating in purposeful storytelling workshops, Emmanuel was inspired to become a lived experience educator, realising that sharing his experience of mental health struggles could be a useful learning experience for others.   

Emmanuel won the Campbelltown Council Art for Planet Award in 2016 and has recently been accepted to study fine arts at the National Art School.
