Exhibitions

Nobody is immune!
Mental ill health is an ordinary occurrence that can affect anyone at any point in their life.

We frequently exhibit the wonderful artwork created by our members in public spaces and galleries to showcase their talents and open up positive  dialogues with the public.

The artwork enables you to connect with the person and to gain an insight into the social factors and circumstances that can lead to mental ill health, how their daily lives are affected, and how art helps them build a new sense of purpose and identity.

Our exhibitions break down barriers between people and challenge the stigma clinging to mental illness.
