Discover multi-media sculpture, photography and animation based on the theme of well-being. The award-winning, arts-based mental health service, Start Manchester, part of Manchester Mental Health and Social Care Trust, has created this new exhibition especially for display at Manchester Art Gallery.

Start in Manchester help people recover from severe and enduring mental health issues through art and gardening. 

For this exhibition, participants have visited the gallery to explore the collection and have been inspired to create their own artworks in sessions with artists, sculptors and photographers. The works created articulate the artists' own feelings, aspirations and concerns and the exhibition, together with an associated programme of events, will explore how creativity can directly impact on our sense of wellbeing.
