Brain & Mental Health Art Show

The Brain & Mental Health Art Show is an annually occurring event organized by SfN Ottawa to help link the scientific and the mental health communities in Ottawa. The show further helps raise awareness and funds in support of local mental health charities. The Art Show is organized as a vernissage, or preview, allowing artists and guests to express their own experiences, feelings, and struggles related to the brain and mental health. Each year we present a diverse range of work including sculptures, mixed media, photographs and paintings, created by researchers, students, artists, community members and individuals with mental health issues.

Held in the Horticulture Building at Landsdowne, our 2017 show was our most successful event to date! We raised over $5000 for Ancoura, a not-for-profit society that helps subsidize housing for individuals living with mental illness. We welcomed more than 400 guests, artists and judges.
