Heads Will Roll


WHEN: 3 Aug 2017 – 6 Aug 2017


Heads Will Roll is a multidisciplinary installation work, created by Self Help Arts with artists from the wider community, exploring the mental health experience of artists.

Created through a series of collaborative workshops in writing, movement, visual arts, photography, object play, and film, Heads Will Roll translates experience into form, asking:

How does our mental health affect our art? How does our art affect our mental health? What does it mean to be a practicing artist with mental health support needs? How does our practice affect the wider world around us – ie, why are we even doing this?!

With inspiration from key artist conduits Kay Armstrong, Natalie Rose and Sarah Emery, Heads Will Roll is curated by Margot Politis and Lucy Watson, and features the collaborative work of: Margie Breen, Lauren Scott-Young, Natasha Sturgis, Madeleine Towler, Paul Walker, and Sarah Wingrove.

Opening Event:
Thursday August 3 | 6pm

Installation Open:
Friday August 4 – Sunday August 6 | 10am – 6pm

This event is happening in conjunction with Armour Day, a workshop and panel for artists and creatives.
