Dugald Stewart Building - 3.11 - David Hume Room



Collaging our Brexit stories: exploring emotional well-being in Brexiting Britain Do you feel affected by Brexit? Join us in this art-based experiential workshop where you will be invited to explore and express your experience through non-verbal visual art media (collage/mixed media). You will be encouraged to reflect on the impact that Brexit may be having on your emotional well-being and mental health and to use found images and text to explore and depict your experience. There will be an emphasis on using your emotions and feelings to work intuitively. The workshop will be facilitated by Tessa Wyatt, artist teacher, and Lorena Georgiadou, lecturer in Counselling, Psychotherapy and Applied Social Sciences.


You do not need experience in art-making. We will provide a variety of materials including magazines, newspapers, pastels, crayons and glue sticks to work with. You will be working individually and doing some small group work.

The generated art pieces will be curated in an art exhibition that will be on display for the remaining of the Mental Health and Wellbeing Week. You may choose to exhibit your work anonymously if you prefer and you will be able to collect your art piece at the end of the week. Your consent will be sought for taking pictures of your completed art pieces for research and publication purposes.
