If you're looking for a chance to step back and unwind, beloved Sydney gallery the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) is hosting free weekly wellbeing sessions. Art Flow offers you the opportunity to take an extended lunch break on a Thursday to soak in some creative R&R, or begin your weekend with a dose of art and relaxation.

Art Flow consists of 45-minute sessions running between 10.15am and 12.15pm Thursdays and Saturdays. The program is open to everyone over the age of 18 and invites participants to take 45 minutes to contemplate art and mindfulness.

Each week there are four sessions, two on the Thursday and two on the Saturday, with a different artwork at the centre of the experience each week. The first four artworks will be Angela Tiatia's Lick, Elizabeth Mipilanggurr's Bamagora (conical pandanus palm mat), Nicholas Mangan's A World undone, and Khadim Ali's The Haunted Lotus.

"The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia is excited to launch this new program, created in response to these post- Covid times, where connection and wellbeing are more important than ever," MCA Director of Audience Engagement Gill Nicol says. "Being with art can help reduce stress and be a powerful source of wellbeing."

Entry is free but if you want to ensure you've got a spot, head to the MCA website.
