In January 2015 a Creative Team of people embarked on a mission to generate as many conversations on the topic of mental health in as many everyday places and situations in the community of Edinburgh as they could. You might call their work artistic interventions, experiments or interruptions to people’s days.

They went to many places, including the Meadows, Hidden Door arts festival, Edinburgh Central Mosque, the Chancellor’s Building at the Royal Infirmary, the Scottish Parliament building, Hibernian football ground, a red telephone box, a yellow bench and Edinburgh Waverley Train Station.

During the 9-month intervention period the small team had spoken to 1047 people, asking each of them - 'Is mental health a difficult topic for everyday conversation?'

Update: We just wanted to explain why the website looks a bit messy. We are currently finalising a 'pack' which will include some things to download, including the story of the project, the film and a few other bits.  It will be available and the website will be all sorted hopefully by January 2019.


This conversation is for everyone. You are invited to join.
