If you have experienced mental health issues you are invited to submit artworks for an exhibition at Summerhall in Edinburgh during October 2018.

Out of Sight, Out of Mind is part of the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival (SMHAF). Last year, over 200 people took part and exhibited paintings, drawings, films, projections, animations, sculptures, photography and installations, as well as taking part in artist talks and holding workshops.

You can submit artwork as an individual or as a group. Individuals can submit up to 4 works in any media. You are welcome to respond to this year’s SMHAF theme, Beginnings, but this is not a requirement at all.

How to apply:

Please get in touch to request the short submission form which needs to be returned to us by Tuesday 31 July 2018.
