Positive Postcards is a project to create a ‘wall of art’ on a theme of positive mental health -create a postcard sized piece of art and mail it to us. Use any medium (collage, paint or
photography for example) with or without text - you could even write a poem!
The work will initially be displayed at The Lowry, Salford Quays on World Mental Health Day, 10 October 2013.
