A New Direction

This exhibition represents a significant stage in the redevelopment of the Collection as it sought to reframe its approach to the display and presentation of the creative works of people with an experience of mental illness.  With a greater recognition of the aesthetic and artistic appeal of these works it aims to make them accessible to a wider and more diverse audience.  The intention was to balance its original role of educating people about the experience of mental illness with its new aim to promote an appreciation of the creative aspects of the works.
