Relationship Map - Mental Health Awareness Week 16-22 May 2016


Relationship Maps – where do you stop on your journey?

Organised by CollectConnect artists' group, hosted by Middlesex University, as part of Mental Health Awareness Week.

Relationship Maps is an artwork which charts how different people make connections and relationships between fundamental concepts - like Mum/Dad, Me/You and Heart/Mind. It is inspired by the map and tube lines of the London Underground.

On Friday 20th May 2016 we will be exhibiting our final Relationship Map in the Rickett Quadrangle at Middlesex University (in Hendon). We are also publishing an A3 version of the map.

And we need you to complete our Relationship Map.

We have eleven “lines” in our relationship map, each starting and finishing with people, places or things that you might have a relationship with:

  • Mum to Dad
  • Start to Finish
  • Cradle to Grave
  • Love to Loss
  • Home to Away
  • Me to You
  • Cat to Dog
  • Faith to Doubt
  • Dover to Calais
  • Heart to Mind
  • Tears to Laughter


There are three blank “stops” for each line. We want you to fill in the blank stops for as many lines as you want, which best sum up how you connect the concepts. Write a title or name (no longer than 4 words) that describes each stop on your journey. For example: what does it feel like to be in the middle between Cradle and Grave, or closer to Cradle, or closer to Grave. You could write something like: Cradle – Carved Heart Rocks – Man Called Horse Junction – Quite Quiet – Grave.

To enter:
  1. The deadline for entries is April 30th 2016.
  2. Send us the names of your stops in one sentence like this:Cradle – Carved Heart Rocks – Man Called Horse Junction – Quite Quiet – Grave
  3. Please include your name and location, so we can include your name in the overall list of artists on each copy of the map. (You won't be able to identify individual authors of each stop though.)
  4. Send entries to Alban Low at collectconnect4@gmail.com or tweet them to @collectconnect4. Middlesex University students can also send entries on a postcard to Kevin Acott, Director of Programmes and Senior Lecturer (Mental Health) or email him at K.Acott@mdx.ac.uk
