Project led by Jacqui Ennis-Cole – MA Drawing, Wimbledon College of Arts. Supported by the UAL Postgraduate Student Communities of Practice Fund
Deadline: Friday 7th July 2017 at 2pm
Hi Everyone!… I have been engaged with a variety of collaborative art projects at UAL and one such project involved a six-month social documentary of a young artist on the BA Sculpture course.
So many of us are impacted by ‘mental health’ concerns and some of us choose to address our concerns through our research and art practice.
Socially Engaged Collaborative Art Practice ‘Living Archives’ and Mental Health Forum
I am initiating this Forum so as to create a ‘Safe Space’ on the 27th July 2017 (UAL Venue TBC) where we could meet and present our research interests, art practice, personal experiences and engage in dialogue together within an environment that facilitates mutual understanding, support and inspiration. I am personally interested to learn how artists, writers, curators, researchers etc. are addressing and shaping the status quo.
This is an opportunity to build a sustainable community of creatives interested in all aspects of mental health, who can stay in touch after graduation and work towards creating activity around the subject in the future.
