Shifting Sands

The theme for Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival (SMHAF) in 2017 was reclaim. This offered an ideal platform for people who experience a range of mental health difficulties to reclaim the right to have a voice and express their ideas on the issues that affect them.
The installation that was produced was created to express how stigma impacts on the lives of those who are already coping with health issues and to encourage a greater understanding of how stigma can add to the burden for people living with these conditions.
Mental health stigma quote:
“It’s so common, it could be anyone. The trouble is, nobody wants to talk about it. And that makes everything worse.”
