Wirksworth Festival, a great success

The Wirksworth Festival was a fantastic event. Thousands of people visited this beautiful Derbyshire town, where over sixty artists and designers exhibited.

Jason had a wonderful response from everyone who came. They were fascinated by his work and interested in learning more about art therapy and how it is a lifeline to many sufferers.

Most visitors knew someone, either family or friend, with mental health problems and it was obvious that the stigma, often associated with this delicate subject, is becoming less of an issue.

Jason would like to thank the organisers of the festival and all those who visited him. It was fantastic getting the message about mental health out to a wider audience and hearing everyone’s experiences. Thank You!

A massive thank you to Naomi for letting Jason exhibit in her flat and all the support Naomi and John gave us.
