The programme includes artist residencies, exhibitions, public programming, events, 'I Hope This Helps' (a crowdsourced documentary) and publishing.
Being staged in a number of cities around the world, including Bengaluru, Berlin, New York and Tokyo, Mindscapes centres hyper-local conversations about mental health and wellbeing that have global relevance.
Mindscapes brings together culture, communities, policy and research, and is informed and inspired by Wellcome's mental health programme.
Visit the Mindscapes online archive, created by the Mindscapes community, to explore the project further.
I Hope This Helps: crowd-sourced documentary
I Hope This Helps is a crowd-sourced documentary, co-produced by Wellcome.
Through collecting footage from people all around the world, the project aims to create an honest, intimate and real-life story of mental health. The award-winning production team hope that the film can create change through sharing stories that help viewers through their own journey by destigmatising mental health in society and by inspiring new research into things that can make a difference.
Anyone can submit videos. Visit the website for more information.
