More than 20 individuals will be exhibiting, including local artists Anna Turnbull, Caroline Underhill and Mary Fleeson who are also offering workshops.

A further 30-plus people from mental health services have contributed to collaborative art works.

Exhibitor Rachel Richards said: “When it comes to wellbeing I think it vitally important to explore and express our emotions. If they are left to fester they can turn into physical ailments and even darker mental distress.”

An artwork about ‘helping my wellbeing’ is being created through the week.
