Since 2020, The Art of Health has used film and drama to engage young people on health matters. Through drama competitions, young people have been able to explore their health and well-being and express their needs through comedy, drama, thrillers and more!
2021 –NATIONAL COMPETITION
In 2021 the Art of health held a national health-themed competition calling on young people across the country to submit entries on their understanding of health and well-being through music, drama and art. Of the 1 153 total entries received across all creative categories, 151 were drama entries.
Health topics explored included physical, mental, emotional, social, financial and spiritual wellbeing.
The 141 entry participants were then shortlisted into 12 finalists who took part in the second phase of the competition after receiving mentorship and a small production crew to record their short films.
