Minds Do Matter: Balance
On show at the Museum in Inveresk from 3 October to 1 November 2020.
This exhibition explores the relationship between art and wellbeing by celebrating arts power to be life-enhancing and life-affirming.
This is more than an art exhibition. It is an acknowledgement that mental health and mental illness are a part of the human experience – it impacts upon individuals, families and communities.
Minds Do Matter is an expression of the lived experience of mental illness and a validation of the creativity, courage and resilience of us all.
Art can be a powerful tool in the healing and recovery process. It is a process that invites conversations leading to greater understanding, acceptance, reconciliation and the discovery of life, as it is, with all its wonderful possibilities.
