Art In Mind a non-profit organisation dedicated to helping communities discover the positive mental health benefits of creating art together. They have developed a socially innovative, community outreach project exploring interconnectedness in a society that is increasingly isolating.
As part of the First Fortnight festival and in association with Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture, Art In Mind will host a discussion panel exploring the positive effects creative practice can have on mental wellbeing as well as giving insight into the creation of the projects ‘Alone in the Crowd’ & ‘One’.
