The Dax Centre

Creating better mental health through ART

"Exhibiting at Dax gave me a sense of being seen, heard and valued. Thank you."

- Exhibting artist, 2020

We work with emerging artists with lived experience of mental health issues, providing a safe and supportive environment for the artists to exhibit their work, develop their art practice and raise the public’s awareness of these artist’s important cultural contributions.

Help us transform the lives of artists with lived experience of mental health issues and break down stigma through art.
