Music On the MountainTop In Mount Gravatt Gives Hope to Women in Need

Bronwen Healy of The Hope Foundation and the director of The LoveWell Project has another passion project coming to Mount Gravatt. Ms Healy is pursuing a creative initiative, Music on the MountainTop.

The initiative is a live local music at the LoveWell Project held fortnightly at the Mt Gravatt Lookout. Music on the MountainTop starts at the kiosk from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., whilst live music begins at 6:30 p.m. The artists who play at the event are friends and “connections” of Ms Healy.

The Hope Foundation is a charity organisation based in Brisbane helping to change the lives of women who have suffered from addictions or worked for the sex industry.

Ms Healy herself was once a drug addict and a sex worker. She launched the foundation in 2006. Her healing journey started in 1999 and this journey also brought forth a book of her own, titled “Trophy of Grace” in 2004.

Upon the launch of her foundation, a “drop-in space” called Hope Haven was also established in the suburb. Hope Haven became the starting point for women trying to rebuild their lives. After this, they are sent to the cafe to work and start anew.

Today, Ms Healy continues to help women through various initiatives. The Music on the MountainTop is to send a message to everyone that they are loved and valued. The LoveWell Project is their cafe that runs their charity’s social enterprise.
