Uncover stigmas, labels and judgements associated with mental health

ThisConnect.Today has long used fine arts as a medium to promote the importance of mental wellness in Singapore, and their latest exhibition at Duxton Hill is no different.

Named What Am I, If I Am Not, the new showcase by the mental health and arts advocacy group will show from now till Oct 31, with support from the National Council of Social Services (NCSS), Beyond The Label, Singapore Kindness Movement, National Youth Council's Young Changemakers and Funan.

Featuring five bodies of work, the exhibition boasts multimedia, performative and mixed medium art pieces. Each artwork represents a different layer of stigma and self-identity, acting as a catalyst for conversations beyond the exhibition space.
 


 

For instance, No mud, No Lotus is an experiential performative piece that expounds on the subject of resilience in difficult times. There is also the meaningful Masks of Singapore that hopes to get audiences pondering about who they are beyond physical appearances.

Furthermore, the exhibition is designed to be a safe environment, providing enriching experiences for individuals to express themselves and engage in important discourse.

It hopes to be a place for locals to learn the importance of mental health, and seek help wherever necessary.
