PIECE OF MIND organisers present their new charity art project…
“Art has a way of speaking to everyone, in any language, mind-state or ability. It allows us to express our thoughts and feelings and share them with the world.
The ‘Piece of Mind’ project looks to exhibit work from local and independent artists and musicians, with the focus being directly on helping to raise awareness for mental health awareness week.
With the help of CALM, the organisers are proud to present Piece of Mind, a not-for-profit idea from Tim Hoyle, owner and illustrator of ShelfLife Clothing in collaboration with Pete Obsolete, art director and illustrator of Obsolete Clothing.
We hope to build an audience that recognises the need to put aside our physical and mental differences and approaches and come together to help those who really need it.
Mental health has always been a subject that we’ve all typically shied away from, even though the majority of people have family members, or friends, who have or are affected by issues raised by mental health. We believe that it should be the person and skills they possess that should be seen, not the disability, so thats why we’re asking for a Piece of your Mind!
If you can help us in any way, submitting an art piece, promoting or sharing the event, or simply telling other people about what we’re doing, please do! We want as many people to get involved involved, with the best way being spotting a piece of work you like and buying it!
Remember 100% of the money goes to charity!
