Minds Do Matter
Open to the public from 5 October to 4 November 2019 at QVMAG Inveresk.
This exhibition explores the relationship between art and wellbeing by celebrating art’s 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.
Presented by Wellways and RANT as part of Mental Health Week 2019
