Inside Outsider Art Exhibition

Thursday 12th - Thursday 19th October 2023
Monday - Saturday, 10:00am - 5:00pm, free entry

Inside Outsider Art Exhibition in Association with in2gr8mentalhealth CIC

Group exhibition of artworks created by mental health professionals who also have lived experience of mental health difficulties.

This exhibition will be included in the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival and is funded by Thrive Arts. This year’s theme is ‘Revolution’.

The exhibition will offer a collective sharing of artworks by those who work and train ‘inside’ the mental health professions, who also experience mental health difficulties and have often felt marginalised as ‘outsiders’ within the professions. We hope that this event will encourage a change of attitude and practice internationally, synonymous with the ethos of in2gr8mentalhealth CIC. in2gr8mentalhealth CIC is a centre for valuing, supporting, and destigmatising lived experience of mental health difficulties in providers of mental health services.

The exhibition will be open from Thursday 12th to Thursday 19th October (closed on Sunday 15th October).

To find out more about the exhibition just take a look at the in2gr8mentalhealth website.
