EUFAMI25: Art Exhibition to fight STIGMA
The year 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of EUFAMI. It is a great opportunity to celebrate our achievements, demonstrate our impact and address new challenges. Moreover, this special occasion might help to gain more visibility to those who we are fighting for: families affected by mental ill health. Therefore, we decided to celebrate this milestone in our work with special events throughout the end of this year which will emphasize issues linked to mental health.
Symbolic 25 art works by 25 artists will be displayed and will be available for sale in PsychArt Gallery in Brussels (rue Thiéfry 51-53 – 1030 Schaerbeek) from 29th November 2017 until XXth December 2017. We’re hoping the exhibition will be an occasion to look at the connection between mental health and creativity, loosely connected around the theme of ‘HOME’. Exceptionality of the event lies in a selection of participating artists as their work or their life has been influenced by the topic of mental health. Each artist has its own story which s/he would like to share with you not only through their artistic skills but also in an interview. All stories are listed below and we will publish more accordingly.
Opening Gala will be held on 30th November at 19:00 by key-note speaker …..
Artists from all over Europe donated their art works which will be sold during the exhibition. All raised money will be used to continue in our work helping to affected families.

Why to support EUFAMI?
The proceeds of the exhibition and the pub quiz will be donated to EUFAMI to raise awareness of the needs of carers of people with mental ill health.
- We advocate on behalf interests of people with mental ill health and their carers
- We support process of deinstitutionalisation and back to society: in order to take people with diagnoses from hospitals, care homes or hospices home to their loved ones. To make this happen, policy needs to be put in place to support carers
- We influence policy through numerous interventions at EU-level
- We helped advocate for the inclusion of carer’s leave and flexible working arrangements in the New start to support work-life balance for parents and carers
