Mind Over Matter — Using Your Voice to Change the System

Thu – Sat, 11am – 4pm

The Masham

An exhibition sharing a series of creative works produced as part of South Tees Changing Futures, which aims to support the voice of lived experience to make a difference to the way services and organisations work for those experiencing domestic abuse, addiction, contact with the criminal justice system, homelessness and mental health.

The artwork featured in the exhibition reflects a range of individuals and their experiences, created through their preferred creative outlets, as a means to reflect on and share their personal journeys – the good times, the bad times and the turning points.

Changing Futures is a 3-year £64m programme funded by Central Government’s Shared Outcomes Fund and the National Lottery Community Fund. It is being delivered across South Tees by the Local Authorities along with commissioned services including Middlesbrough Voluntary Development Agency. The aim of the programme is to improve outcomes for the most vulnerable adults, ensuring they get the support they need by better co-ordinating public and voluntary services and to provide joined-up support to those who are experiencing multiple disadvantages.
