They asked a group of people suffering with mental illnesses, “if you could explain your mental illness, what would you say?”. From these responses and working with a team of artists they created In My Mind, an immersive pop-up experience that’s intention was to remove the stigma surrounding mental health issues. The event aimed to create an open discussion between those suffering and those who have not experienced anything like it before.
