Creating Welcoming Spaces
Here at Marninwarntikura we have been working on making our environments as welcoming and calming as possible. It's the little things, the earthy colours, the comfy couches, the diffusers and a few plants that capture the type of nurturing we are encouraging with each other and the women we work with.
We have big plans to create therapeutic spaces inside our buildings and healing gardens, that wrap around all the different places we work, the studio, women's shelter, marulu, legal unit, offices, and art therapy space. We are slowly working through all the areas to make them inviting with design features that create a sense of calm. The combined effect will promote healing and help all our teams in the work we do, to support Fitzroy Valley women and their families, to address complex challenges while creating positive futures.
