Bayside has teamed up with the Brotherhood of St Laurence and engaged six program participants from disadvantaged backgrounds to bring their ideas to life.
The students have been involved in a “Transition to Work” program and began the unique art project a few months ago, working out of the Kindred Art Space – a local spot that provides mental health and wellbeing services.
The result is a stunning and colourful mural with meaning for each participant and their families and is now a centrepiece of the Christmas display at Bayside.

“The “Transition to Work” artwork is a vibrant piece that we hope will start a very important conversation about the role of the Brotherhood of St Laurence and community organisations working in the Frankston area,” said Bayside Centre Manager Gabe North-Harney.
Rebecca Crillmot, Regional Manager of Youth Transition to Work Programs from the Brotherhood of St Laurence was in the RPPFM pop-up studio in Bayside on Friday 8 December with Heather & Michelle to talk about the mural and the program’s success.
See the Mural for yourself, it is now hanging next to the Reject Shop.
