Coinciding with ‘World Mental Health Day’, which falls on 10th October, a group of 28 local artists have organised an art exhibition ‘Mind the Art’  – with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues and mobilising efforts in support of mental health. 

As a group of differing cultures, ages and gender, they are presenting work in a variety of media from painting and sculpture to cartoons, film and interactive installations. 

Their aim is to bring many and varied perceptions to a multi media exhibition – reflecting their own personal experiences as well as exploring society’s assumptions about mental health. 

The exhibition has a special viewing on Saturday 13th October. 6 – 9 pm, and is open to all.

Mind The Art is on The Art Academy, 155 Walworth Road, SE17 1RS.  From 10th – 22nd October.  Times: 11am – 5pm.  Admission: Free.
