Flight of Ideas, International Exhibition
Bethlem Gallery

3rd October – 25th October 2013

To celebrate world mental health day 2013 the Bethlem Gallery staged an exhibition of postcards made by artists staying and working in hospitals across Europe. Flight of Ideas is a collaboration between innovative arts practices, studio spaces and galleries based within psychiatric healthcare showcasing works from Montfavet Hospital, Avignon in France, Hospital Vrapče, Zagreb in Croatia, The Azienda USL di Reggio Emilia in Italy and Bethlem Royal Hospital, London in the UK. The exhibition celebrates the shared ideals of these initiatives, framing them within the context of each nation’s system of mental health care.
