Event: “Mindfulness in May" The Silence of Stigma Youth Arts Exhibition
The theme of the 2015 exhibition is “Stigma” and the artists were asked to interpret their knowledge and reflections on the topic. We are all impacted by Stigma in some form and as a society it is up to us to find ways to reduce Stigma and see each other through the eyes of compassion and understanding. Sharing opinions, telling stories and reflecting on ideas through art can be a catalyst for change. These powerful pieces uniquely illustrate the idea of stigma in various and different perspectives. See how the youth of the district transform Leigh Square with their creativity and share their ideas and insights.
