Newcastle based fashion & music store, Abicus has teamed up with Byron Bay based fashion label Thrills because we want to raise awareness and critical funds for the youth mental health service, Headspace. Together we curated ‘Back To The Future’, a unique art exhibition featuring 16 Australian artists’ work on 16 denim jackets.
8 artists from each magical coastal town have produced artworks specially for the back panel of a classic Thrills denim jacket. We exhibited these jacket in-store at Abicus & online Nov 24 - Dec 11. With 100% of the proceeds going to Headspace Newcastle.
Sally Bourke, Paul McNeil, Aaron Kinnane, Michael Bell, Lucas Grogan, Tabitha McGregor, Jordana Henry are just some of the stellar line up of artists we hand picked to be part of this project.
WHY WE LOVE HEADSPACE

Headspace is an early intervention health service for 12-25 year olds.
Their aim is to reduce the impact of mental health on young people. The awesome team there provide FREE mental health services, physical health services, drug and alcohol services and social and vocational services to our local youth.
Early intervention is the key to addressing youth mental health and it is through community support like this you will be helping Headspace to achieve this.
