Year of Drawing exhibition: Drawing and Mental Health
- 11 — 22 July 2018 *on now
What can you use to make a mark? What will happen once you begin? Are you curious about where drawing can take you?
This exhibition celebrates Year of Drawing; a year-long site-specific project organised by Make Your Mark, the arts and health programme for Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. The project, which started in autumn 2017, aims to increase access to the arts for people facing mental health challenges in Sussex and Hampshire through public drawing events at cultural venues, pop up studios in NHS mental health settings, and a series of drawing-based Recovery College courses.

Utopia is a photo exhibition that creates a counter-narrative to the problematic representations of children from the Global South in many charity representations. It shows photos of and by children living in a camp for internally displaced persons in Nigeria.
Having been forcefully evicted from their homes in north-eastern Borno state by Boko Haram terrorists who have also abducted hundreds of schoolchildren, killed tens of thousands of people, and bombed major cities - the children hope for a brighter future.
Utopia explores the themes of race, representation, resilience, migration, enterprise, imperfection, and beauty; challenging the visual stereotypes of the developing world in global development discourse. It features the photovoice images of these resilient children, enabling them to tell their own stories. The exhibition is supported by the University of Sussex Researcher Development Programme's Public Engagement Fund.
