MENTAL at Science Gallery



MENTAL is a welcoming place to confront societal bias and stereotypes around mental health.

MENTAL presents over 20 experimental projects from local and international artists and research collaborators that reflect a range of different perspectives on mental health and ways of being. Part exhibition, part experiment, this is a place to explore, empathise and question what it means to be human using science, technology and creativity.

Curated in collaboration with a team of young people with input from experts and academics across the sciences and creative arts, lived experience has been platformed, acknowledged and centred as expertise in navigating a theme that matters more than ever.

Head inside and reflect on the many different ways of being, surviving and connecting in the world.


One of only eight nodes worldwide and part of the acclaimed Global Science Gallery Network, this gallery will involve, inspire and transform curious minds through arts and science and is a dynamic new model for engaging 15-25 year olds with science.
