The Relationship Map is an artwork which charts how different people make connections and relationships between fundamental concepts – like Mum/Dad, Me/You and Heart/Mind. It is inspired by the map and tube lines of the London Underground. The map features submissions from 50 contributors who charted how they felt about each of the concepts. On the 20th May 2016 a large scale Relationship Map was exhibited in the Rickett Quadrangle at Middlesex University, Hendon, UK as part of the MDX Let’s Talk event for Mental Health Awareness Week.
MDX Let’s Talk is a Middlesex University initiative which aims to raise awareness of mental health/illness through collaborative working of University staff, students, public and local/national agencies. Through this we hope to raise awareness of mental health and signpost to any relevant services for support if needed.
