01

PROMOTING MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS

Using art to tackle big issues

OUR MISSION

Dancing with Demons Events and Exhibitions is an organisation founded to raise the profile of artists whilst generating much needed funds for charities.

DWD Events is working in conjunction with Mind to promote the Art and Community Engagement Award at Peerfest in December 2019.

To dance with a demon is to embrace the fear we run from, to combat that which seeks to destroy us, not with anger, but with an art.

DWD ART EXHIBITION: RAISING MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS

3rd December 2019

DWD will be teaming up once more with Mind to support The Art and Community Engagement Award in association with Peerfest. DWD will be promoting and arranging an exhibition of artworks at the event with the theme of Peer Support.

 

West Bromwich Albion Football Club,
9 Birmingham Road
West Bromwich
B71 4LF

 

We have three key objectives.  Firstly to raise awareness of the importance of peer support in helping those with mental health issues.

The event will also help promote local artists through providing exhibition space to display and sell their work. See list of artists included in the event.

Through raising awareness of mental health issues we hope to provide a greater understanding of the daily challenges they cause.

 

Turn your demons into art, your shadow into a friend, your fear into fuel, your failures into teachers, your weakness into reasons to keep fighting.
