A Celebration of Resilience.

We have just been through one of the most tumultuous years of our history. Covid 19 meant all of us lived some time in isolation, were anxious about the unknown and lived in fear of contracting a disease that may have had deadly consequences.

We have worn masks, stayed our distance and avoided intimacy with our friends and family. "The smallest hug was outlawed."

All of us were affected and for many this presented as a deterioration of our mental health and wellbeing.

This exhibition celebrates the incredible Resilience of all, the compassion, the community spirit and much more!

Many of those who are impacted by Mental Illness utilise art as a tool for expression, well being and therapy. Individual recovery is our journey and often mediums such as Art and other creative forms help people grow and change in this process.

This event has seen artists impacted by Mental Illness express thoughts and insight into their individual recovery, wellbeing and therapy. It has also helped artists open up, change and grow through the experience of exhibiting, connecting with others of lived experience or family and friends, and having their work affirmed by the public and wider audience. The conversation has always been open, educational and comforting in this very welcoming and safe space.
