I am always an advocate for the creativity in others and I firmly believe that we all have a creative streak in our beings, waiting for us to be able to realise it. Collaboration is the key that opens the door to such realisation and it is my primary principle when I am creating in any capacity.
The opportunity has come for me to now connect with the diverse wards at Springfield University Hospital in London which offers a broad range of services for people who are faced with mental health challenges. As I am myself one of the 1 in 4 people in the UK who has suffered from mental health challenges and I know how important it is to connect as much as possible with others in a creative capacity, giving space to heal, be part of, have fun and most importantly developing a sense of mutual compassion.
These murals are an easy-going ,incremental and inclusive experience that invites patients and staff to share their creative resource in the form of doodles that are brought together produce a unique and exciting final mural that not only celebrates the individual but the group as a whole.
