What can you use to make a mark? What will happen once you begin? Are you curious about where drawing can take you?
This exhibition celebrates Year of Drawing; a year-long site-specific project organised by Make Your Mark, the arts and health programme for Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. The project, which started in autumn 2017, aims to increase access to the arts for people facing mental health challenges in Sussex and Hampshire through public drawing events at cultural venues, pop up studios in NHS mental health settings, and a series of drawing-based Recovery College courses.
Year of Drawing training event: Drawing for wellbeing, 16th July, 12:30-4:30
We will focus on using drawing in three main ways: for self-expression, for processing thoughts, feelings and experiences, and to support effective communication. The event will be especially relevant to mental health staff and carers and will help establish an accessible toolkit of ideas and materials. No previous experience of drawing required.
