Please help us run this important art exhibition aimed at breaking down mental health stigma and discrimination.

Auckland

This exhibition is being held at Corban Estate Art Centre in Auckland on the 17th-19th of May 2019. The purpose of this exhibition is to educate people about mental health/distress and show how through self expression, we can help heal and break down stigma and discrimination, by having an exhibition that is raw, interactive and confronting.

We are doing this by bringing together like minds throughout New Zealand, who all do art as a form of therapy. To give them a voice which is sometimes lost and to bring about a reclamation of power and mana.

By doing so we will enable conversations around mental health and wellbeing and in doing so normalise the conversations around it.

A portion of the proceeds will go to Changing Minds to help them to continue doing the amazing work they do.

Artists exhibiting are: Eve Wereta, Vee Hoy, Karyn Quin-Smith, Kelly Reichardt, Chrissie Jones, Greg White, Julie Johnstone, Aaron Grater, Kelly-Anne Te Huki, Maria Gomez, Leilani Thompson-Rikys and Rosilea Leat.

Use of funds

The funds raised will be used to cover the costs of putting this exhibition on, including things like lighting, print/media advertising and opening night costs. Any surplus will be donated to Changing Minds.
