How Art Helps Conquer Depression
Health professionals the world over acknowledge the therapeutic association between art and mental illness. Art takes the mind into another dimension: one of expression and release. In many ways, the symbolism of one’s inner being expressed through art can speak more than words – either written or spoken.
Artistic revelations can take many forms. Pottery, oils, acrylics, song, dance, writing, poetry and photography are keys to expression. And the artist will take a chosen medium and change it into something new. As he or she creates the image or song or dance there is seen a mirrorlike reflection of the soul.
The pleasure taken during the creation of a piece is amplified when complete. And if the piece is admired by friends and strangers magic happens. And the artist is rewarded beyond wealth. Although the artist who is suffering may not follow his style or medium for any other reason than the concentration needed while creating takes her away from the issues causing discord.
This is the power of art – The expression of the soul and spirit – of one’s true essential self…
HeArt In Mind
This event is unique. The idea is to bring together artists who have used art (in any of its forms) to help them through difficult times. And HeArt In Mind allows them to help other people to see the benefits of artistic creation. Artists are invited to stand at the show for a token price if they are selling their work and without charge, if they wish to only exhibit. There will also be a stage where spoken word (storytelling or poetry) and songs and open mic comedy are performed.
To support the show Ian Timothy runs a used goods shop in Nottingham’s Victoria Centre. A percentage of profits made at the shop are given to the HeArt In Mind project. It is hoped, the shop will make sufficient funds in the future to make the event free to attend! This of course depends on help from people who donate items for resale. The idea is unique and enjoys incredible interest from all of our friends and supporters.
HeArt In Mind offers an amazing opportunity for companies and businesses who are art suppliers to promote their products. Whether by donation or by attending as a retail opportunity they can be certain of being associated with a wonderful aspect of art. And we will also offer opportunities for individuals who wish to demonstrate art supplies.
If you have art courses and wish to have paid workshops, the opportunity is here at this event. Use the contact email below.
