Our partners SCARF just launched a very special deliverable as part of the community engagement and strategy plan for PIECEs: the 2023 Arts Calendar, featuring the beautiful work produced by service users throughout the past year.
Through the use of creative and arts research methods, we have been engaging with service users and involving individuals in as Lived Experience Advisory Members in our research. Using arts as a tool for community engagement, dissemination, raising awareness, reducing stigma and building a bridge that connects people with SMI, healthcare workers, care givers, policymakers and the general audience into dialogue about this overlooked, underrepresented and difficult subject to discuss.
In January 2023, the calendar was launched with an event open to the public at SCARF’s headquarter, in Chennai, and the calendar will be distributed to the wider community. To view the complete calendar, click here
