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

Art4Minds Self-care Workshops

Sunday March 10, 2-4pm
Sunday March 31, 2-4pm
Sunday April 28, 2-4pm
Sunday June 9, 2-4pm

ART4MINDS is a self-care community initiated by artist Sara Stenbæk. Art4Minds uses meditation and art to aid self-discovery and stress relief. We facilitate a supportive, non-judgemental and confidential space for the participants to reflect on personal and group themes.

EACH WORKSHOP will explore different topics related to art and mental well-being. After a relaxing guided meditation we will be visualising our feelings as colours to then attempt to express them through drawing/painting/collage.

Art materials provided! The workshop is open to all. No experience required!
Please arrive on time!
The workshops are donation-based (however, no one is turned away due to lack of funds).
Suggested donations:
Unwaged £3
