Un/Stuck: Creative Explorations of Negative Thinking

Exhibition showcasing artworks by young people

Flyer for Un/Stuck exhibition with an artwork featuring a 'river' made of pink wool with a wooden boat on top

What’s on offer?

A curated exhibition that showcases creative outputs from a series of workshops (co-produced with young people) to explore everyday experiences of repetitive negative thinking. The artworks will be presented in the form of large-scale photographic prints and smaller-scale physical objects.   

Visitors are invited to share their own creative responses, which will be captured within a suspended collage wall that will form part of the exhibition.   

What’s it about?

At the heart of this event is a focus on young people’s mental health and wellbeing, and the potential for creative, participatory research approaches to “give voice” to young people’s everyday mental health experiences. The artworks bring to life young people's experiences of repetitive negative thinking and suggest positive strategies to support wellbeing.  

Who’s leading the event?

This project is a collaboration between researchers from the School of Psychological Science, Chris Jarrold and Meg Attwood; artist/researcher, Catherine Lamont-Robinson (Bristol Medical School), and project partners, OTR (Off the Record) and the McPin Foundation.
