Art in Mind is a non-profit organisation dedicated to helping communities discover the positive mental health benefits of creating art together. They have developed a socially innovative, community outreach project exploring interconnectedness in a society that is increasingly isolating.
As part of the First Fortnight festival and in association with Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture, Art in Mind will host a panel discussion exploring the positive effects creative practice can have on mental well-being as well as giving insight into the creation of the projects ‘Alone in the Crowd’ and ‘One’.
All are welcome to attend but registration is required, for further information and to book your space contact Nollaig at firstname.lastname@example.org.
