The organisation Broken Grey Wires (BGW) is an ongoing investigation into art and mental health illness by developing a dialogue with leading contemporary artists, communities and audiences.


By responding to, and exploring ill mental health, we aim to break down stigmas, develop opportunities, create space for people to participate in our projects and for art to become a facilitator for recovery, however that may manifest for the individual. 


BGW is a radical organisation, an atypical response to the binary in the mental health system. We do not define mental illness and we do not ask for evidence of mental illness from participants.
