“The Design Change Makers event was an inspiring experience, it was great to get the opportunity to talk through my project to an audience of like-minded people who are all interested in using creativity for good, seeing people positively react and engage with mine and the rest of the panel’s work was a unique opportunity especially being so soon after graduating university. Before the event I felt quite nervous and unsure of how people would react to my project and whether the way I had articulated what I wanted to say came across in a clear & confident manner, I was unsure of how my work could be relevant or how it could make a difference. Thanks to the Design Change Makers event and talking to various people after the talk, I now understand the importance of creativity to inspire positive change around mental health. Everyone I spoke to came to me with positive feedback which in turn has inspired me to continue to develop my work and take on any more projects which can use creativity for good.”
“I was gladly surprised to see so many great projects challenging mental health stigma and encouraging open conversations and support to keep us well. It was also quite emotional at times. Before the event I was less motivated about theproject and by the end I felt inspired to carry on my work and pushing for positive impact.”
