In 2011 Penguin Artists (Sue Armstrong and Peter Lane) in joint partnership with Doutta Galla Community (Mental) Health (now cohealth) and Open Channel (a community video production and registered training organisation) delivered a Certificate III in Media for students with psychiatric disabilities.
Two videos resulted.
• A documentary called Media and Mental Health
• A zombie comedy set in a psychiatric ward called Medication Time
As a pathway from that project, Penguin Artists were commissioned to establish a community video training and production organisation by and for people with psychiatric disabilities.
Mixed Nuts Media Inc. was the result.
We Incorporated in 2012.
Our management committee are people with psychiatric disabilities skilled in governance issues. We also engage with mentors who do not have psychiatric disabilities.
