Head inside a welcoming place to confront societal bias and stereotypes around mental health. 

MENTAL features over 20 experimental projects from local and international artists and research collaborators that reflect a range of different perspectives on mental health and ways of being. Part exhibition, part experiment, this is a place to explore, empathise and question what it means to be human using science, technology and creativity. 

Lived experience has been platformed, acknowledged and centred as expertise in navigating a theme that matters more than ever. MENTAL was curated in collaboration with a team of young people with input from experts and academics across the sciences and creative arts.

Visit us, and reflect on the many different ways of being, surviving and connecting in the world. No bookings required and it’s free to see the exhibition!
