SMHAFF 2015 – Call for artwork

It is that time of year again when we are beginning to plan our input to this year’s Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival! This year CAPS will be organising exhibitions in Summerhall, Leith Library and Edinburgh University Chaplaincy Centre. In order to fill these spaces we need your artwork so if you are feeling artistic over the summer and put brush to canvas we would love to exhibit your work. The theme of the festival this year is “Passion” and but you need not be too constrained by this, you are free to be as creative and as passionate as you like! So long as your artwork is connected to mental health it can be in any format such as a painting or a sculpture or a photograph. We would like to hear from you about what you are planning to submit! By the end of August 2015 we would like you to provide us with a short description of what you would like to exhibit or a photograph of the artwork if you have already finished your it as well as the size it will be. We are looking forward to seeing what you all have up your artistic sleeves!
