After several years of fundraising at events, and two major fundraising campaigns adding up to over $9,000 for the Black Dog Institute, it’s time to go big!
Over the next 12 months, Zoomi Creations will be auctioning off art, and taking commissions by way of direct donation to the Black Dog Institute.
There is a dedicated page for donations, so that we don’t handle any money.

Black Dog are the only medical research institute in Australia to investigate mental health across the lifespan, our aim is to create a mentally healthier world for everyone.
They do this through ‘translational’ research. Integrating their research studies, education programs, digital tools and apps, clinical services, and public resources to discover new solutions, foster connections and create real-world change.
Their partnerships with people with lived experience, federal, state and local governments, communities, schools, corporate Australia and others in the mental health sector enables us to drive evidence-informed change in mental health where it’s needed most.
Since they were foundation in 1985 as the ‘Mood Disorders Unit’ at Prince Henry Hospital, Sydney, they have been at the forefront of mental health research. Rapidly evolving to drive the creation of new knowledge and ensure that clinical best practice continues to be improved and refined in line with the latest evidence.
Today, their focus has expanded to address new challenges and opportunities in mental health – suicide prevention, digital innovation, lived experience, youth and workplace mental health.
