Mural project—360° virtual tour

Take a closer look at Newcomb Secondary College's mural in our 360° virtual tour.

Geelong Gallery partnered with VicHealth’s Future Healthy initiative Jumpstart! to connect and empower 450 Newcomb Secondary College students in levels 7 to VCE and their teachers to co-design a collaborative mural that transformed the school. Working with Geelong-born and internationally renowned street artist, Rone, the project harnessed the power of the arts to inspire young people, improve young peoples’ health and wellbeing and help build healthier communities.

A special thank you to all students and teachers at Newcomb Secondary College, for their enthusiasm, participation, and commitment to this project.

Collaborating artist, Rone says ‘Providing these young people with an opportunity to take a leading role in all decision-making processes and supporting them to collaborate and work with their peers, and to plan and co-design this public mural has been an incredibly fulfilling experience. The outcome of the mural is just a small component of the hidden benefits of a project like this.’

Jumpstart! Is the second major investment in VicHealth’s Future Healthy initiative. Together, Jumpstart! will create hundreds more community-led initiatives for Victoria’s children and young people.
