About Us

The Bay Health Festivals have one very simple aim: to create spaces and opportunities for people to have conversations – easy or difficult – with family, friends, neighbours, and with ourselves. We want these conversations to help us make simple changes that will have a big effect: rediscovering the art of living well.

Our Vision

Why aren’t we living as well as we could, given all the possibilities we have in society?

How is it possible to get out a message that we can make a significant difference to our health by making small changes to our lives?

The answer that we came up with, was to stop telling people that they need to change and start celebrating the fact that we can change.
