The Hi, How Are You? Project
Using visual artwork, I want to encourage people of all ages to start a conversation about mental health and well-being by using the greeting ‘Hi, How Are You?’ This can be a difficult conversation to begin, however, by combining a creative and cathartic activity, the process will enable individuals to express themselves whilst focusing on the task. This is a mindful project and it is as much about enjoying the activity as the finished art work.
There are 16 panels to complete a final piece and each person decorates one section. The designs show the
overall installation when all the individual sections are put together. It is designed to illustrate the fact that we all can be a small part of something bigger by coming together.
