Mental Health Awareness Week 2019

  • Tilly Tasker

How do you make space to talk about mental health?

The Challenge:
With mental health being such a trending topic at the moment, how do you approach the question of mental health with mindfulness and sensitivity? The answer? Ask the right questions, and hand the microphone over to real people.

We set up shop for Mental Health Awareness Month (May 2019) in Westfield Stratford, and armed with Roman Kemp and his microphone, we invited people to come and talk to us and maybe offer answers to the question: "How do you make time and space to talk about mental health?"
Answers were woven into an incredible work of artwork on the background of our installation.
My role:
We were live tweeting, and live posting to our Instagram stories throughout the afternoon. Roman Kemp did an Instagram take over for an hour, and I was populating Instagram and Facebook as well as asking questions and encouraging the community to engage with our project.
