STIGMA: dismantled, revealed

Through the creative practices of seven contemporary artists including an artist in residence, STIGMA: dismantled, revealed explores the pervasiveness of stigma and self-stigma that persists around mental health issues today.

Experimenting with different mediums and methods of examination, the artists convey moments of their personal stories. Themes of mindfulness, healing, trauma, belief and diagnosis are examined, provoking conversation, reflection and empathy.
