What brings you here?
I am honoured to have been selected to create a community art installation with Rail74 Community Rail Partnership. The artwork aims to engage with the public and raise awareness and understanding of mental health issues, particularly those faced by young people in our society.
The artwork will include positive affirmations in the form of Mantras conveying uplifting messages to commuters at Hamilton Central.
If you live or work in South Lanarkshire why not take part in this new and exciting art installation being created for Hamilton Central Station?
Send us your Mantra for better mental health and wellbeing and be part of this artwork. (Please include your first name to be credited with your Mantra.)
email your Mantra to : email@example.com
The project was initiated by Rail74 Community Rail Partnership and supported by @scotrail and @crosscountrytrains with guidance from @samaritanscharity The project has been made possible with a grant from @avantiwestcoast
Joanna Buckley, community manager at Avanti West Coast, said: “We’re proud to be playing our part in bringing the community of Hamilton together to create artwork that champions the town and its people, while raising awareness of mental wellbeing.Through our work with Samaritans we know the importance of seeking help if you’re struggling. We hope this project will make a difference by signposting people to support available and reminding them they’re not alone, which is more vital than ever as we face the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.”
‘In 2010 Samaritans began working with Network Rail with the aim of preventing rail suicides and supporting those affected by them’.
