Hello, thank you for your interest in this inspiring project. Crowd funding for the doco is now complete and production underway. We intend to launch a follow up campaign in 2019 to raise funds to publish the accompanying book. In the meantime, feel free to look through the material here and correspondence is very welcome at
colourbynumbersproject@gmail.com

This free public resource documentary uniquely unravels links between Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) or childhood trauma and many neurological conditions. We have self-funded footage and now invite community to come together in resourcing itself with tools to treat and beat this silent epidemic. We hope to raise $3000, over 4 weeks, to produce this documentary.

‘The science is crystal clear. ACEs dramatically affects health outcomes across the lifetime. They constitute the single greatest public health threat we face today. ACEs literally get under our skin and change our physiology, impacting brain development and mental health, hormonal and immune systems and even our DNA’. (ACEs study)

This project is Victoria Schnaedelbach’s courageous initiative. Having participated in an innovative neurological rehabilitation program for complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, she came away with a remarkable body of painting works and greatly improved quality of life.

Victoria’s background as an Artist, Creative Arts Therapist and Medical Scientist uniquely placed her to invite her treating practitioners and colleagues to come together in fostering education about the sensitised CNS and recovery.

Today’s lifestyle impacts dramatically on the state of our nervous system and it is now a major public health concern. Conditions like Autism, Parkinson’s, ME, MS, Chronic Fatigue, Lyme disease, Chronic Pain and Alzheimer’s are on the rise. Yet, most people still know very little about their nervous system and how it works.

Conversations that foster education and exploration of our precious nervous system and how we can look after it, are of tremendous importance for everyone.

This Project is a unique collaboration of 5 diverse health care professionals. It brings together a remarkable breadth and depth of experience, bridging traditional, complementary and integrative medical practices with the arts and culture, to tell Victoria’s inspiring story.

Her visual art exhibition and book accompany a public forum that tours communities, exploring new possibilities evolving at the interface between Neuroscience and Arts Therapy.

Unprecedented interest established the need to reach broader audiences using an online documentary format. Particularly, for those experiencing debilitation, isolation and stigmatisation and their families.

We need your help to create voice over and edit this documentary about our uniquely Australian health care culture. With enough donations, we’d love to capture more footage, produce hard copies of the doco for those unable to utilise the Internet and, publish the exhibition guide book documenting Victoria’s ‘Colour by Numbers’ creative rehabilitation method.
