Relationship Map at Middlesex University

Our exhibition map
Tomorrow (20th May) come and join us at Midday in the Rickett Quadrangle at Middlesex University, Hendon, UK as we launch our Relationship Map as part of the MDX Let's Talk event for Mental Health Awareness Week 2016. We'll be joined by Kevin Acott who has worked on several projects with us as well as being Director of Programmes and Senior Lecturer (Mental Health) at Middx Uni.

Relationship Map (detail)
The Relationship Map 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. The map features submissions from 50 contributors who charted how they felt about each of the concepts.

MDX Let's Talk is a Middlesex University initiative which aims to raise awareness of mental health/illness through collaborative working of University staff, students, public and local/national agencies. Through this we hope to raise awareness of mental health and signpost to any relevant services for support if needed.

Contributors include Tamara Jelača, Iain Inglis, Peter Turton, Peter S Smith, Liz Dolan, Harvey Wells, Dean Reddick, Jerome, PD, Natalie Low, Jill Hedges, Effie Aye-Maung-Hider, Alban Low, Steve Cohen, Ruth Dalton, Kevin Acott, Katie Stone, NAA, David, Colin, Seamus, Amin, Bryan Benge, Sarah Dewing, Tom, Pam, Mehmet, Arnand, Imran, Wayne Sleeth, Tanya Kreisky, Stuart Crewes, AS, Eddie, Julie Reay, Tracy Ferriss, Helen Reddick, Sammy, Dawn Duncan, Melanie Woodcock, Peter T, Robert Good, Jo Lansdown and 7 anonymous submissions.

You can buy the Relationship Map on Amazon for £2 (+ Postage and Packing). It folds out into a wonderful A3 poster and is full of interesting coincidences and meaning as you chart your way across its routes. The map is published by Sampson Low Ltd and a copy is kept in the British Library and the other 5 deposit libraries of the UK.
