Exhibition by concept body artist Emma Fay on people's personal impressions and understanding of wellbeing and mental health.




The exhibition explores a deeper, more personal view of what health and wellbeing means to individuals, with intent to serve as a reminder that we all have our own view of what it means to be well.

Concept Body Artist Emma Fay has worked with participants of the Community Learning Project (CLiP), the West Indian Senior Citizens Leicester Ageing Together Project and members of the public to understand their impressions of health and captured and how mental wellbeing plays a role in this. Following one-to-one interviewing, Emma has visually portrayed their perceptions of health and mental wellbeing through the medium of body art.

Emma Fay’s work can be seen here.

The exhibition will be on display and open to the public between 29 September and 13 October, Monday – Friday between 9am – 6pm; and on Saturday between 9am – 2pm at the African Caribbean Centre, Maidstone Rd, Leicester.
