Sand Talk

Join thousands of people to bring a spectacular human art installation to life on Surfers Paradise Beach at the Sand Safari Arts Festival – all in the name of positive mental health.

This community-minded collective will form a massive speech bubble with the message ‘#yourstory’ as part of Sand Talk, an immersive art experience aimed at sparking conversations about mental health and wellbeing.

Sand Talk 2020

Sand Talk will see visitors invited to share notes or words about mental health and wellbeing on a large white container that will appear on the Surfers Paradise foreshore from February 14.

Then, on Sunday 23 February, Sand Talk will come alive with a Community Day to mark the opening of the container and the chance for visitors to step inside and share messages on its interior.

A range of mental health and charity groups will be on-site to host stalls and provide support, while volunteers overseeing the installation will be able to share information about such organisations throughout the festival.

Sand Talk Community Day will then culminate when thousands of friends and strangers take to the sands of Surfers Paradise Beach to form the symbolic human art installation.
