An exhibition was held at The Museum in the Park 17th to 20th May, this exhibition was on the theme of Mental Ill Health and Medication and this was in conjunction with Mental Health Awareness Week 2018.
Over 25 artists took part, most of which have experienced mental ill health themselves, all participants are supported by Independence Trust Stroud, and Surrounding areas.
The works which took the form of Photograms, Artists Books, Art Works and Sculptures made a powerful statement of both the negative and positives effects of medication, stories were shared through the worksand this moved people, which then got them talking, this was the main aim of the exhibition which was totackle the stigmas associated with Mental Ill Health and medication.
Quote from Museum in the Park
‘We were honoured to show this moving, powerful and thought provoking exhibition here at The Museum in the Park and believe all the Artists should be very proud of what they achieved. The Museum is for everyone, and everyone knows someone whose life has been affected by mental health challenges even if they are lucky enough not to have experienced mental ill health themselves. The artwork made people think, ask questions, share stories, understand other people and their struggles a little more – thank you Independence Trust Stroud and all the Artists for organising this incredible exhibition.’
