#About the event


Mary Hoang

Mary Hoang

Mary Hoang is an entrepreneur, artist and the head psychologist and founder of The Indigo Project, Australia’s largest and most progressive psychology practice. Since 2009, she has been pioneering a creative approach to psychology. Mary has emerged as a leader in the humanisation and transformation of the mental health industry. After her father’s death in 2017, Mary turned to art and writing to explore the darker aspects of life – anxieties, fears, insecurities, loss, emotional pain and ‘baggage’ – and how these hold the keys to insight, meaning and purpose. The moving artworks she produced, utilising sound, psychology and installation, informed groundbreaking research by the University of Melbourne. Mary explores aspects of these immersive audio experiences in her book, Darkness is Golden, which will be published by Pantera Press in 2021.
