Deadline Monday 04 December 2017
Are you 16-25? Get involved!
‘All in the Mind?’ is a visual arts project exploring personal and political issues relating to mental health. Through the virtual and physical exhibition of their images, young people will have the opportunity to express themselves, engage in conversation and actively contribute towards positive change to mental health education throughout the city and beyond. Find out more here.
On the 6th and 8th of October 2017, the ‘All in the Mind?’ Collective exhibited their work at SPACE (Old Market). We are so thrilled with the reception the work received – we got some incredible feedback, and celebrated the young people’s success with a great closing party on Sunday.
“Brilliant! Utterly refreshing and free from pretension. All artists and everyone else should see this inspiring work and learn something.
I’m so glad I came.” – audience comment on 'All in the Mind?'
But the project doesn’t stop there; now it’s time for you to get involved!
The next phase of the project is the collection of responses to the theme of youth mental health and the initial work generated by the ‘All in the Mind?’ collective.
We want to hear from everyone – even if you don’t consider yourself to be an artist. It doesn’t have to be a painting; it could be a photo, some writing, a performance piece, an installation – anything!
To get you started, here are some basic questions to consider:
- What does 'mental health' mean to you?
- How do you feel about your mental health?
- Are there any aspects of the exhibited work which you are drawn to? Why?
- What unexpected materials might you use that could reflect your state of mind?
If you have any questions about contributing – anything at all – please get in touch, either by email or via social media.
You can contribute by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submissions will be published on our website and social media – included within an ‘All in the Mind?’ collection – with one piece or artist selected for a solo feature.
