Description

ABC TV recently screened Arts Access Victoria's inspiring documentary 'The Wall', a film about the creation of a special art project.

'The Wall' tells the story of how an oppressive concrete hospital wall was transformed by a community of artists to assist patients in their recovery.

Between May and August 2008 a group of artists, guided by professional artist Michael Knight, created a massive mural on a courtyard wall in the mental health ward of Casey Hospital, as part of a project coordinated by Arts Access Victoria. The project was documented by filmmaker Jonathon Chong in this half hour film which features interviews with many of the artists and participants.
