Art Chemist | Nelson Arts Festival

Thursday 20th-Sunday 23rd October 2022

Did you know you can get arts on prescription? To look at a painting, read some poetry or immerse yourself in a performance may be exactly what the doctor ordered!

Art Chemist is an interactive performance and visual arts installation by Ōtautahi-based performance artist and community activator Audrey Baldwin, here to support mental wellbeing and a thriving community.

Just like your local pharmacy, you’ll be prescribed with creative means to tackle everyday woes and gripes.

“This will be a playful yet earnest artistic intervention. I hope to encourage people to participate in the arts and see the value in them beyond aesthetics - as a tool for wellbeing, connection and contemplation.” - Audrey Baldwin

This event is part of the 2022 Nelson Arts Festival.
