mindshare Group Exhibitions

As an accessible platform for self-expression, mindshare historically works alongside creatives living with complex mental health challenges who’ve utilized expressive arts as an important tool in their recovery journey.  Our online Gallery is a virtual space for visual artists all year round, but during October the Art becomes tangible! 
The yearly mindshare Group Exhibition, held during Mental Health Month, showcases diverse creatives from mindshare’s online gallery, shortlisted entrants from mindshare’s Creative Writing Awards, as well as work by MHCSA’s participants and partners in three locations across Adelaide city.

You can see our 2021 Group Exhibition here, and our 2020 Group Exhibition here.
