Unmasked Women is an exhibition channeling the Black British female experience through creatives.
Our first theme is health and well-being including an in-depth exploration of Black mental health within the UK.
In order to spark a much needed conversation about mental health within the Black British community, we aim to creatively document and showcase the work of several artists whilst creating a safe and open platform for further discussions.
