This exhibition is the focus of the Under the Rug project - a new mental health initiative developed by SPAMH (Students Passionate About Mental Health), a subcommittee of the Western Australian Medical Students’ Society (WAMSS). In this instance, Art has been used as a way to stimulate meaningful conversation about mental health.
Contributing artists were encouraged to explore their personal experiences, and to challenge the stigma surrounding mental health issues, which is prevalent throughout society. Works include paintings, photography and audio-visual pieces amongst other media.
