OPEN CALL for ARTISTS: MOVING FORWARD: Group Exhibition

Northern Ireland Mental Health Arts Festival (NIMHAF) is a growing festival in its 5th

year, set up to celebrate mental health, challenge stigma around it and fight

inequalities. The creation and enjoyment of art contributes hugely to the recovery and

thriving of many people who experience mental-health difficulties; our programme –

including this group art exhibition at Belfast’s University of Atypical– will highlight and

champion arts-driven wellbeing.


The 2019 festival theme is Moving Forward: We invite visual artists who have

experienced mental health issues to submit artworks exploring this theme. The

artworks will be part of a curated group exhibition selected by an experienced panel.


Media

We’d love to see artwork from a range of visual media: drawing, paintings, sculpture,

mixed media, film installation, photography, illustration, etc.


Size

No specific limit, but gallery space will curtail the number of large pieces. Please

state dimensions of art works in your submission, and any practical needs for

displaying sculpture and other 3D work.

  

DEADLINE

8th April 2019

Please send submissions to nimhaf19@gmail.com

Include:

 a brief statement (100-150 words) introducing yourself, your work and your

interest in the exhibition
