The World Association of Cultural Psychiatry is inviting submissions of a 4000 word essay about an arts-based project that contributes to a greater understanding of mental health/illness.
The winning essay will receive a £300 prize and will be considered for inclusion in a special publication produced by the Association.
The selected project or series of initiatives can be in any given cultural context. (e.g. an arts-based prevention, advocacy, research, and/or healing project). The essay must be accompanied by visual materials (such as photos and/or videos of the project) or links to visual materials (e.g. website, shared folder) and can also consist of a photo-essay. It can be a joint project (e.g. a project co-authored by a healer and an artist).
