Mental Health Action Days Switzerland
As part of the Mental Health Action Days 2021, the old town of Solothurn will become a Living Museum, where the shop windows of various stores will be used for exhibition purposes. With this exhibition, we want to offer artists with a (mental) impairment the opportunity to become visible with their artistic work in the city of Solothurn. The old town of Solothurn is very popular with the general population and is therefore particularly suitable for such an exhibition.
The exhibition will run from October 10, International Mental Health Day, until October 27. One artist per store will exhibit works. Thus, during the exhibition period from Oct. 10 to Oct. 27, the old town will become one big gallery. Along the display windows of the different stores, an art walk can be made in the sense of an alternative city tour.
