ROOM 6.4 / Artists and Mental Health

September 2018 – February 2019

"Madness is a gift from the gods." Plato
"We of the craft are all crazy." Lord Byron

Is mental health a problem or a gift? One in four adults lives with a mental health condition yet this illness often remains shrouded. hARTslane is offering a platform to examine mental health through the experience of artists and their work, to raise awareness and to advocate for the arts as a tool to wellbeing.

ROOM 6.0 focuses on a relevant contemporary issue every 6 months and will provide a forum for exploration and cultural engagement on current affairs. Submissions are welcome from artists and curators alike. The specific topic can be addressed through collaborative and site specific projects, exhibitions, workshops, talks and screenings.
The programme welcomes proposals from UK based as well as international art practicioners

Passaggiatina is a not for profit artist led art residency that brings together artists from all over the world to live and work together in the small Apennine Italian community of Atina, Lazio for the last weeks of August.
It is a constantly evolving event and seeks to bring more contemporary art to the locality, reach out to the comunity or intervene in a positive way on the everyday.
‘Passaggi’ can mean the passing from one place to another, or to one phase of life, or from a state of mind to another. It can be a transition. Artists are encouraged to use this as their starting point with an emphasis on community or place. The resident artists are mostly all based in London, many have exhibited together or know each other from the art scene.
They are invited to live and work together as a community at the atmospheric Asilo Beatrice, a school run by nuns and a gift to the local community. Many of Atina’s residents are happy to collaborate with artists projects and help with research about its ancient history and their interest and trust in the artists is developing each year. The time there is short but the work made in the studios and out and about is intense and often immense as usually there is a show of some kind at the end. This year the show was held at Palazzo Ducale a 14th Century castle and featured film, performance, painting, photography, music, sound, intervention, installation, textile, sculpture, writing and poetry.
The residency is brought together by artists Chris Simpson and Jude Cowan Montague with organisation by Riccardi Orazio Paolo President of the Atinart - Associazione di Arte e cultura.
