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.
