The SA Federation for Mental Health hosted the I Decide=I Am travelling art exhibition from the 17th to the 27th of July at our Randburg offices.

The globally acclaimed exhibition by Bulgarian illustrator Nadezhda Georgieva and award winning journalist and human rights activist Yana Buhrer tells the personal stories and reflections of sixteen people denied of their legal capacity because of their psychosocial or intellectual disability. The exhibition also includes three pieces by South African artist Daniel Mosako, based on his interpretation of the Life Esidimeni tragedy in which almost 100 mentally ill patients lost their lives. 

The exhibition is an initiative of the Centre for Human Rights in collaboration with the South African Human Rights Commission, and it moves on to be displayed at the Pan African Parliament, Cliff Dekker Hofmeyr, and ends at the University of Pretoria where it will be displayed during the Centre’s annual disability rights conference taking place 7-8 November 2017.

SAFMH invited residents and staff from residential facilities and Mental Health Organisations from across Gauteng, and were pleased that 5 different groups of mental health service users from organisations such as Talisman Foundation, Little Eden, and Logwood Village came to view the exhibition.
