Lost Bird Found

Established in 2014 by North Sydney Council, the Lost Bird Found Project, is a mental health creative arts initiative that aims to encourage conversations and promote connection in the community.

The Lost Bird Found Project invites individuals and groups to create handmade birds that are hidden for people to find and keep!

Attached to the birds is a tag with information on the project and how to access mental health information and support.

Birds, which are a symbol of freedom, hope and wisdom, have been popping up in Spring as part of the Lost Bird Found Project have been spread far and wide, extending beyond North Sydney to the Central Coast and as far as the Sunshine Coast.
