Out from the Mist comes to One Arts

Out From the Mist is a unique international photography and short movie competition, that is heading to One Arts Gallery on the Gold Coast from 4 December 2021 to 12 January 2022.

Now in its second year, Out From The Mist provides a platform for professional and amateur photographers who have experienced mental health issues, enabling them to have their voices heard through an emotive, powerful and creative display.

The competition was showcased online and at a live exhibition during World Mental Health Week in October, with the tour taking place afterwards.

Harnessing the power of storytelling, the exhibition showcases the strengths and the challenges, the joyous moments and the sad, of those who directly and indirectly confront the challenges of mental illness.

“It is about raising awareness about types of mental health and people’s responses to it,” says One Arts Gallery director Carol Collins. “Particularly currently during the pandemic.”

In 2019, 440 thought-provoking, expressive and courageous entries from over 20 different countries provided a powerful and insightful glimpse into the complexities and challenges of mental health, and the hope of recovery.

Artists were from around the world, as well as Queensland. This is the first time we have hosted the exhibition here, so it’s a fantastic opportunity for Gold Coasters to get out and see this incredibly moving show in the flesh.
