More information on this project can be found here

As a public artwork Recognition…Validation…Reassurance… takes the form of a social practice art project. Created by community participants for community benefit, the content addresses mental wellness. Devised and led by artist Dick Averns Reassurance… is based on the premise that mental health is about self-expression but is often invisible. Yet visual art, which also hinges on self-expression, can make mental wellness visible.

Presented along a city block in the downtown core, this 24/7 installation features nearly 200 artworks generated through free community workshops. Selected artworks will appear on buses, a CTrain, posters and billboards across Calgary during June and July. How do you create a framework for mental wellness?
