Date: Wednesday, 2nd February 2022
Time: 2pm to 4pm
Explore the heritage of the arts and mental health in Scotland using a recently created archive of oral history recordings and through making zines (mini DIY magazines). Beforehand you will be posted the materials.
It will be led by curator and playworker Anna Tudos, and community artist and training art psychotherapist Henri Eagle-Wilsher, for the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival.
At the end, if you like, your zine or a copy of it will be displayed online in the Reclaiming Our Heritage archive and at an event in March 2022.
Free and no experience is necessary.
This particular session is organised by CAPS Independent Advocacy. Many of us have first hand experience of the power and relevance of the arts in the realm of mental health. We hope this workshop will be an interesting and creative way to learn more about it in Scotland.
Reclaiming Our Heritage is a two-year oral history project which ended in April 2021. It recorded and preserved the spoken testimony of people involved in the arts and mental health community in Scotland, between the 1950s until the early 2000s. Mental Health Foundation ran the project with help from a group of volunteers across Scotland. Explore the archive.
