[Sorry it has been a while since the last blog, deadlines have taken over]
Rainbow Heron in association with Chilypep and Sheffield MIND are proud to present an art, activism, youth and mental health event.
On Tuesday 5th June, 2018 at The Quaker Meeting House, 6-9pm. The event is open to all and will involved conversations, debates, presentations and discussions centred around how art and activism can help create a more inclusive future for young people when it comes to mental health.
Art is an important form of expression and has been shown to lessen feelings of depression and anxiety. Creating something is a way of being able to see with your own eyes something that you are feeling internally. Art is a way of externalising the feelings that you may otherwise struggle to express, giving them less power over you.
Although some people may not necessarily identify as artistic, everybody has something to give and art can come in the most abstract of forms.
