The Taunton Hearing Voices Group, a project provided by Mind In Taunton & West Somerset, has been asked by Go Create to create a banner for the 2017 Taunton Live arts festival which takes place between 24th to 30th July in Taunton Town Centre.
Group members took inspiration from their own lived experience of mental health issues as well as their diverse range of practical skills to pull together a piece of art which focuses on the positive aspects that they all have. The concept that they came up with uses a lot of outdoor imagery to both signify the benefits that being out in nature has on all our mental health and also the idea of working through difficult times and the personal growth one goes through after a period of emotional distress.
Taunton Hearing Voices Support Group Bio:
The Taunton Hearing Voices Support Group was started in October 2016 to support people who hear voices, see visions, have tactile sensations and other sensory experiences. They meet once a week to share, support each other though their experiences and to take part in other therapeutic activities.
The group meets every Thursday afternoon in Taunton 2pm-4pm.
