Block 336 is running a visual arts access programme for people experiencing ill mental health.
We provide person-centered opportunities for individuals to explore, create and exhibit their own art. Individuals work with resident artists through a series of projects in the Block 336 studio and gallery environment.
From Fri 26th– Sun 28th July, working with Creative Future, Block 336 will host the IMPACT art Fair. The fair is the UK’s first national art fair showcasing work only by artists who have experienced mental health issues, disability, ill health or other socially excluding circumstances.
From February - March 2013 we worked in partnership with the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and a group of South London artists experiencing mental ill health. A six week long workshop programme culminated in an exhibition of the works produced during the course. Participants were involved in all aspects of the exhibition process.
In August 2012 we hosted a week-long studio project creating an installation for Archbishop's Park, North Lambeth. The installation was shown as part of Summerfest, an annual community festival at the park.
For this project we worked with South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and a group of South London artists experiencing mental ill health. We aim to promote critically engaging art practice in a supportive, working studio environment that is in close contact with its wider community in South London.
