The launch of ‘A Darker Christmas’ art exhibition at Studio KIND in Braunton is tomorrow (Friday 1st Dec, 5.30pm to 7.30pm). Curated by Jody Medland and Ruth Bateman, this intriguing project raises awareness of mental health conditions that are exacerbated at Christmas, while also showcasing the work of 18 local artists.
Everybody is welcome, the exhibition is completely free, and there are also special events every Saturday, ranging from panel discussions to carol singing and live theatre. For full details take a look here: https://tinyurl.com/42aec2wm
Why not go along to the launch tomorrow (Friday) from 5:30-7:30pm? Or you can visit in the period 2-16 December between 12:30-5:30pm, running from Wednesdays-Saturdays. If you visit on Saturday 2nd Dec, you will also have the chance to take part in a thought provoking panel discussion between 2pm and 4pm addressing ‘The stigma surrounding suicide’ and Should grief be taught in schools?’ with Jody, Moses Warburton from The Samaritans and our own Naomi Jefferies, CEO of FiG.
As Jody would say – ‘Be there or be square!’
