  • Investigation | SCENE

    ​ The condition of where we work, live and visit directly influence our state of mind. ​ ​ Australians enjoy one of the best health and welfare systems in the world, along with the freedom to pursue all walks of life. ​ Health and Welfare ​ Everyone has access a broad range of services; full spectrum of free health care, study now with deferred fees, housing, food, income and municipal amenities. Plus public spaces, parks, recreational activities and events. Everything we need to create a lifestyle of our choosing, for free and at our fingertips . ​ Environmental Obstacles ​ Even with all these benefits and opportunities, if living conditions are bleak , positive thoughts and experiences are quickly diminished. Personal progress can be greatly hindered. ​ For organisations a run-down workplace can affect motivation and mood. For visiting clients in need, dreary premises may reinforce their diminished situation . ​ A welcoming environment promotes a positive attitude. One of SCENE’s pursuits is to gather data from projects and programs to demonstrate designed & decorated spaces contribute to overall wellbeing and play valuable role in a complete health & welfare system. Improved spaces allows individuals to relax more, think clearer and set goals. For community groups, welcoming, inspirational premises enrich the staff and inspire visitors. ​ ​ ​ Get in Contact if your interested in assisting with developing this study. ​ ​
