Hello, people of the world. Some of you might know that I am currently studying on the 3rd year of the Applied Arts Degree. I have chosen depression as the subject I will focus on this year. I have been asked many times why I am exploring such a subject. So I am going to tell you: I believe that art has the power to join people together and make the hostile world smaller. So that’s why I am doing this art project. Depression has been one of the leading diseases on the western world. My journey of studying and making art about depression made me realize that I can help people somehow. This event #deardepression has been created because I believe if we share our struggles with one another it makes a bit brighter, a bit healthier.
In this event you are asked to share your experiences, there are many ways to do this.
This event is for every single human being. You don’t have to be depressed to write something. if this subject inspires you to ‘write’ about it and share it, then go ahead.
This event also about breaking the barrier of depression and making everyone a stepcloser to a healthier self by expressing feelings and becoming closer to the people around you.
The way to participate is to use the #deardepression on your post so people can find you. Also post the link to the comments below. If you don’t have a blog you are more than welcome to write your story and send it to me or post it on the comments below– either way I will try to make it visible. If anyone wants to write something on the Facebook page, twitter, or tumblr please feel welcome to, but remember to use the hash-tag and tag me so I can see it.
