It seems like a good time to tell you how we all met and came up with the idea for The Yellow Suitcase project. We all meet at an art group for individuals whose lives have been disrupted by mental health issues. It is an amazing group that is full of fun laughter and creativity. It's a place where people come to share nosily, forget quietly, to dream, a space to just be. As an artist working with this beautiful gang we have shared the best and worst times together and the art group is a constant in what at times for people seem impossible. Whilst we created we dreamt up The Yellow Suitcase Project and the seven of us walking up Snowdon to bring about change. We hope that the travelling Yellow suitcase will start a dialogue, get workplaces talking and in turn this will help to look after the mental health of each and every one of us.
