Tactile Minds: Ceramics Exhibition in Support of Mind

About

22 ceramic artists and makers have made pieces in response to their individual mental health journeys, emulating the full and unique spectrum of experience. These works will be on display in the 18th century House Mill in Bromey-by-Bow, the world’s largest surviving tidal mill in support of the mental health charity, Mind.

1 in 4 people each year face mental health problems. It is founders and curators Candy Ward and Catherine Mountford’s passion for working together to build awareness of the mental health challenges and their love for working with such a versatile and expressive material, that has formed Tactile Minds.

This exhibition is to publicly continue the open conversation of mental health challenges and to empower more people to talk about their experiences with others and to have the confidence to seek professional help and therapy.

The House Mill is a remarkable setting for this exhibition to take place in as it steps away from the clean white box that art exhibitions are so often held in. Its historical context within the ever changing cityscape of east London offers a distinctive chance to draw attention to this beautiful building and the heritage of Tower Hamlets and Newham.

Alongside this exhibition will be a pop-up shop with works for sales to accommodate a scope of price ranges.
