People who have personal lived experience of mental health issues are invited to submit artworks to Out of Sight Out of Mind exhibition.

Last year more than 180 people took part and exhibited installations, projections, films, animations, paintings, drawings, sound works, prints, sculptures, and photographs.

You can submit artworks as an individual or as a group. This year one work per person can be submitted. Artworks can be proposed/submitted in any media and be any size. You are welcome to respond to this year’s Scottish Mental Health Art Festival theme which is ‘perspectives’, however this is not a requirement at all.

We are planning to hold the exhibition at Summerhall in Edinburgh during October 2020. The current situation may lead to changes such as its location, date or the exhibition being moved online. If you make a submission, we will let you know about any changes.

How to make a submission:

Get in touch to ask for the full guidance and a submission form. The form needs to be returned to us by Friday 31st July 2020.

If you would like to speak to us about your or your groups idea/artwork before submitting it, if you have any questions or would like a submission form, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or leave a message for Pam on 07989402634.
