Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund

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 experieincing mental health conditions.

This project will be shaped and led by participants, volunteers and staff who are directly and indirectly effected 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.
