Over a period of several weeks a group of 10 people worked together to explore the topic of mental health through art, making working primarily out of cardboard and other recycled materials. Some of the participants had little to no art experience. Together they worked to produce this exhibition which includes interactive stations where visiting members of the public may choose to contribute to the exhibition should they wish. Also on display will be collaborative output from over 1 year of The Art Club and also monthly 'Walk, Meditate, Create' day retreats.
This promises to be an exciting and unique exhibition, suitable for all ages, encouraging dialogue on mental health and the role creativity can play. Entrance is free and you may come along any day. However, to join us on the open evening please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place.
