How can we create a legacy of equality, empathy and empowerment for mental health in the North East?

Speakers from across sectors (Art, Health, Museums & Emergency Services) will be discussing, exploring and challenging the role of heritage collections, peer-led initiatives and the representation of people with mental health conditions.

Programme to be released later in May 2019

The “Heads & Tales” Mental Health Heritage project is proudly supported by Heritage Fund.


About the wider Heads & Tales Project

Heads & Tales is a 2-year project to create a new heritage archive for the North East exploring, rebalancing and celebrating the voice of adults experiencing mental health conditions.

This project will be shaped and led by participants, volunteers and staff who are directly and indirectly affected by mental health issues. The project will expand to reach a wider population through public engagement, audience and participation strands across the North East.

Looking back through time from the late 1800s on, we will gather together and respond to current Archives in Museums, Health & Arts sectors. As well as this reflective work, we aim to also create substantial new archives with the starting point of the Declaration of Human rights in 1948 up to the present day.

Through Artistic means, we aim to capture and create new material for the archives that show a more diverse perspective and understanding of the contemporary Mental Health Sphere. We hope to raise equality in archival material of an underrepresented group by creating new narratives on people’s memories and experiences for future archives and generations.
