For Nottingham’s Mental Health Awareness Week, Framework are working in partnership with Andy Farr (Artist), who has developed the Portraits of Isolation exhibition in response to people’s experiences during lockdown.

COVID-19 is causing real anxiety across the UK and the rest of the world, negatively impacting our mental health. Being in a lockdown can be psychologically challenging and the isolation emotionally tough.

This exhibition is a showcase of people’s experiences during this unprecedented time, gathering experiences through email, telephone, and videoconference.

Andy has been working in collaboration with With-you Consultancy, founded by Marissa Lambert and Karen Machin, who have an established reputation in peer-based approaches.

Join us on Tuesday 6th October on Framework’s Facebook page, where we will be live streaming a webinar, which will include:

  • Introduction about the exhibition
  • A live tour from Andy of his portraits set up in a gallery space
  • A discussion/Q&A with Andy, Marissa and some of the participants

During the webinar we welcome questions.

Find out more about Andy Farr.
