Out of Sight Out of Mind, a multimedia exhibition featuring artworks by 100 individuals who have experience of mental health issues, is to return for its eighth year to Summerhall – and will be available online for the first time on a brand new website.

It will be essential to book your visit to Summerhall in advance and it will be organised in line with current Scottish Government COVID guidance. 

The launch will be online on the evening of Thursday 12 November at 6.30pm. There will also be some online events and workshops throughout the month. Details on how to book your visit or the launch will be available soon on Out of Sight Out of Mind website. 

In whatever format people visit Out of Sight Out of Mind this year, as usual, it is going to be a unique, diverse and very human collection of works.

Out of Sight Out of Mind is organised by a Planning Group of people who have lived experience of mental health issues and staff in organisations that work alongside people with experience of mental health issues. It is hosted by CAPS Independent Advocacy, funded by Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership. It is part of the year-round Edinburgh “A Sense of Belonging Arts Programme” and the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival’s year-round programme. Other organisations involved in planning the 2020 exhibition are Penumbra and MECOPP Gypsy/Travellers Carers Project.
