We The Human: A Quiet Blue Wall is a collaborative art project aiming to lower the number of suicides through the use of the Cultural and Creative sectors. It is a project designed and developed by an artist from the community of the neurodiverse at risk of suicidal ideation and attempted suicide, for the community wishing to prevent suicide, their own or others.
Someone somewhere or maybe even yourself needs a quiet acknowledgement that struggles with emotional and mental health too many times comes from the complexities of how society is structured.
This is an ongoing project aiming to run until 2030.
There's no submission fee or benchmark of artistic experience you need to climb over to have your self-portrait accepted, your collaboration and involvement is the precious bit.
