About

Art4Change is a project aimed at giving disadvantaged sections of the community the opportunity to gain self-confidence, transferable skills and to feel valued, by creating and exhibiting Art work that draws attention to a wide range of social issues.

For homeless awareness week 2018 we are asking three questions:
-How would you feel if you no longer had anywhere to live?
-What are the effects of mental health on individuals & society?
-How can we overcome the stigma surrounding mental health?

Visit The Vestibules
OPEN 10am – 3pm / Monday 26th – Friday 2nd March

By asking these questions we hope to raise awareness of the link between homelessness and mental health.
Mental Health can affect anybody from any walk of life and can be triggered by many factors including work related stress, relationship breakdown, bulling, physical and sexual abuse, to name a few , there are many social, environmental and psychological causes. One in four people suffer from a mental health issue at some point in their lives. One in six people report experiencing a common mental health condition (such as anxiety and depression) in any given week. Most of us are but one step away from this issue,
The content of the exhibition will be two wooden framed houses with cardboard panels, one of the houses has been put together in Workshops held at St Mungos. And one blank to invite the
gallery goers/general public to express their thoughts feelings. By answering the above questions they will respond to the house that has already been created so to break down and challenge pre conceptions that the public may have in regards to homelessness, to encourage a dialogue between the public and homelessness service users.
