Submissions open for Express Yourself Exhibition 2018!

We’re asking students to get inspired and submit a piece of original artwork on the topic of mental health. It can be based on your own experiences or maybe a placement that you’ve been on.

Following the success of our first exhibition in 2017 we have once again partnered with medical student Natalie ‘Tilly’ Ellis and, this year, also brought on board Laura Dernie of My Discombobulated Brain.

This year’s winners will be announced at our exhibition on University Mental Health Day, Thursday 1 March, and will appear alongside the other top 10 entries.

The evening will commence from 6.30pm with a series of brief talks, an exhibition by photographer Alex Stewart entitled ‘Why Don’t You Smile More?’, followed by a wine reception.

Tickets are free to book on our Eventbrite page. Both entrants and the general public are encouraged to attend.

The deadline for submitting entries is Friday 26 January. 

Visit the exhibition page for more details about the event and how to submit your artwork.

Good luck!
