7th June House of Lords debate and 10th June Rich Mix screening and artist's talk is looming

It is rather frantic at my end with last minute preparations for the House of Lords debate on 7th June. I designed an invite last night and still feel there is a great deal to do.

This week I met with the Malaysian Mental Health Association in Kuala Lumpur. I pitched a documentary, book and scroll project idea to the President, Vice President and Dr Ang. This region is very behind in terms of mental health there is a great deal of work that needs to be done. They all seemed excited by my ideas and I have to write a proposal in the coming days for Dr Ang to present to the Ministry of Health.

I am very much looking forward to coming to London and also giving my artist's talk at Rich Mix where I will be discussing how I have used art to keep well. I will also be reading new writing related to mental health and screening White Wall, the animation film that I was commissioned to make by the UK Film Council.

The Houses of Parliament exhibition is now scheduled for 27th June in the morning, I have just submitted my biog and sent off the high res image for the website. 

I also have good news I was awared an Ars Council grant for my next scroll project. I am planning to create a scroll with women suffering from maternal mental health problems. It is something that could be replicated in other parts of the world. I do believe that art does have a palliative impact on the mind and certainly helped me get through my own mental health battles
