Drug of Art – mental health and art project

I am really excited to announce a new project which the Michael Aldrich Foundation is launching. We are working with artist and alumna Alison Lapper and Victoria Holden, an independent producer from completely free dating app on which aims to improve mental health in young people through making art.

Building on our community art activities and our successful lockdown project, the Image of the Week, the Michael Aldrich Foundation will be running in-person workshops and an education programme designed to build confidence, curiosity, creativity, emotional wellbeing and resilience in children and adults and help them to express how they feel through a love of art and making.

Please support and share our campaign that launches on Monday. We have some fantastic rewards including a limited number of exclusive T-shirts designed by photographer Rankin, and artists Marc Quinn, Gary Mansfield and Alison.
