Antony the Five Ways to Wellbeing Poster in the Norwich Underpass

I was asked to be involved in an exciting project which has helped to transform St. Stephens Street underpass in Norwich, sparking discussion through paste up and street art. This has been a huge success and has helped to spark discussion about Mental Health as well as giving the gloomy underpass a makeover. This was organised by Community Service Volunteers and Time to Change. There were many artists who contributed to the work pasted up. For more images from Artists involved in the project please click on the link at the top of this blog. Laura Wigby who works at the BBC organised the project. I created a colourful poster of Antony the Five Ways to Wellbeing Ant to cheer the underpass up and hopefully people who walk past the poster. The Five Ways to Wellbeing can help everyone feel more positive about their lives and can help with mental wellbeing – Connect, Be Active, Take Notice, Keep Learning and Give. For more information about the Five Ways to Wellbeing and Antony click on link below.

Nicola Simmons created this very clever poster about Dyslexia above. It would be interesting to do research into connections between Mental Health, Dyslexia and Creativity. I am Dyslexic and I was diagnosed quite late in life and always wondered why I found reading and retaining information so hard.
