The theme of this year’s World Mental Health Day is ‘Young People and Mental Health in a Changing World’. This is particularly relevant in India, a country set to be the world’s youngest by 2020. Our mental health system is nowhere near resourced to meet our needs and the work of organisations like HNI is providing support to those who need it most.
Fluid Identity, an HNI Fundraiser, is an art show by Indrani Chowdhury, a Bengaluru-based artist, whose paintings breathe life and colour into living and working spaces. Her subjects range from landscapes and monuments to dancers, musicians, and even clowns. Indrani’s choice of medium varies based on her state of mind and she believes that art is a cathartic experience designed to ease us into the fluidity of being human. Indrani believes that art should be democratic and her affordable creations are designed with a young audience in mind. She has been kind enough to donate 40% of the show’s proceeds to support HNI’s work. Come on over and do your bit for mental health.
