Council launches HEARTFELT community recovery project

The HEARTFELT project celebrates the creativity, strength and kindness of the Huon Valley people when times get tough.

Huon Valley Council invites community members to share their message of care and hope for others in the Huon Valley by creating a heart of any material and sharing it online.

When we can all be together again in person, Council will create a public exhibition of all the community’s HEARTFELT hearts, photos and messages. In the meantime, use and follow #HeartFeltHuonValley on Instagram to share your contribution and enjoy the creations of others!

We will also be showcasing your HEARTFELT contributions on the @huonbeings Instagram account and Huon Valley Council Facebook page.

How to participate:

  • Create a heart out of any material (find inspiration below or on Pinterest)
  • Take a photo of your creation (or a selfie with it!)
  • Share it to Instagram using the hashtag #HeartFeltHuonValley, or email it to us at
  • Post your creation to us at 40 Main St, Huonville and we’ll include it in our HEARTFELT exhibition
  • Or, consider sending your heart to someone so they know you are thinking of them

Give Council a call on 6264 0300 and we can post out a craft pack to get you started.

We encourage you to spread word of this recovery project far and wide with friends, partners, and your social networks so that people throughout our entire community can be part of it.
