Minds Do Matter: Balance

Minds do matter exhibition 2020 QVMAG.png

 

On display 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.
