Our Events and Projects Officer, Rachael Laidler, was recently interviewed on the subject of Being’s upcoming Recovery in Art Exhibition. Were very glad to see WayAhead sharing the messages of recovery and hope we showcase in our Recovery in Art Exhibition.
“Being’s Annual Recovery in Art Exhibition traditionally a part of October’s Mental Health Month is shifting to a month long time slot some time in 2017.
The Recovery in Art Exhibition is all about celebrating the creativity of people who have experienced mental illness, as well as their journeys towards recovery. It has been around a few years, but the next one is going to be particularly special because it will be held in the foyer of NSW Parliament House and opened by the Minister for Mental Health The Hon. Pru Goward.
We had a chat to Rachel Laidler, the Events and Projects Officer at Being to find out more.
Could you tell us a bit about the exhibition?
The Recovery in Art Exhibition’s been running for six years and it’s an exhibition where all of the artists involved have a lived experience of mental illness and the idea is to break down a bit of the stigma surrounding mental illness and talk about recovery instead.”
