Event Details

Look Beyond will visit South Tipperary Arts Centre as part of its nationwide tour from 13th- 26th August 2018. The photography exhibition is the work of 16 people with lived experience of mental health difficulties. The aim is to challenge people’s perceptions of mental health and to encourage positive conversation.

In Look Beyond, people with mental health difficulties were invited to speak for themselves, giving us deep insight into the often unseen reality of what it means to live with a mental health difficulty and revealing many different paths to recovery.

The exhibition is an output of a photovoice research project commissioned by See Change and conducted by Dr. Maria Quinlan and Dr. Etáin Quig
ley from University College Dublin and Maynooth University.

Photovoice is a research and advocacy methodology which uses photography as a way of giving voice to people who often feel unheard and unseen in society. It has been used internationally to both explore and raise awareness of the stigma associated with experiencing mental health problems.
