Daily 10am to 5pm Tuesday 5th – Friday 8th September. Out Of The Blue Drill Hall, 36 Dalmeny Street, Edinburgh, EH6 8RG.
This collection by young people from The Alternative School at Spartans Football Academy explores the interaction between art, mental health, social identity and personal perception. Through spray-painting, film, sculpture, pattern design and photography the young people take art outside of the curriculum to create space for escapism and well-being within sometimes hectic and stressful days. Sales from the exhibition will raise money for Edinburgh based charity Turn The Tables, which offers DJ workshops to improve mental health for people affected by homelessness.
