[02 OCT 98] COVENTRY HEALTH AUTHORITY PRESS RELEASE
Art Exhibition For World Mental Health Day

Coventry Health Authority are organising a Creative Arts Exhibition in celebration of World Mental Health Day to take place at the Showcase Exhibition Hall on Earl Street, Coventry from 6 to 8 October 1998. The official opening will be on Tuesday 6 October at 11.00am and will be attended by Dip Donaldson, of Coventry Crusaders.

The exhibition will be focusing on positive thoughts and uplifting themes; what people think of when they are down to make them happy. The artwork and creative writing in the exhibition has been contributed from Arty Folks, Wilfred Spencer Centre, children from Ravensdale School, children from Early Years Fun Event (organised by South East Community Education) and work sent from citizens of Coventry.

In addition to the creative arts, there will be a mural at the exhibition, on which visitors can add their own drawings or writing. On Wednesday afternoon, Arty Folks will be at the exhibition to hold a workshop for their students to make Christmas cards.

Rachel Zaldua, Communications Specialist said

"The idea of the exhibition is to involve everyone and to raise awareness of mental health which affects us all, as most of us have suffered some form of stress in our lives. The various interpretations of positive thoughts from different contributions will be really exciting to see, especially knowing that the ages range from as young as 4 through to 60 plus. We really hope that people will be able to pop in and see us, it’s going to be a great, fun event."

The exhibition will open on Tuesday 6 October, 11.00pm – 2.30pm, Wednesday 7 October, 11.30pm – 5.00pm and Thursday 8 October, 11.30 –2.30pm.
