Forma Mentis is led by the Gabriel Caruana Foundation in collaboration with the Richmond Foundation, and explores the relevance of arts-based modalities to empower individuals who experience marginalisation and social exclusion, as a result of their mental health status. A project undertake in 2020, Forma Mentis will strengthen links between voluntary organisations working in the area of contemporary art and psychosocial wellbeing, in particular, key stakeholders from the creative sector and mental health sector in Malta. Through a series of artist-led workshops, in close collaboration with mental health professionals, the Project will engage with clients and service-users to explore and enhance their emotional resilience; strategies for social inclusion; and personal/communal wellbeing.
