In 2010 the reTHiNK Grant funded a twenty-four hour theatre challenge, a t-shirt design competition and exhibition, and a community art installation.

 

 

 

 

Joshua Gerbault for reTHiNK: Ethosphere

This exhibition first asked artists of Aotearoa to ‘reTHiNK Madness’ by producing designs to get people thinking about mental unwellness in a positive way.  Images were also screen-printed onto limited edition T-shirts and exhibited at Te Karanga Gallery on K Road from August 19th – September 1st.  A selection of T-shirts were then later available for purchase from Rodayo Busk.

 

Adam Fresco for The reTHiNK Theatre Challenge

10/10/10

For the 10th day of the 10th month in 2010, scriptwriters were asked to create a 10 minute script that explored the theme ‘Madness as a Matter of Degree”. Teams of actors and directors were given 24-hours to workshop the 10 best scripts for performance at the Titirangi Theatre and The Classic during Mental Health Awareness week. 

A short taster is below but you can watch the videos of each performance  here!

Carolyn Millbank & Colleen Altagracia for “reTHiNK What’s On Your Plate”

This project asked Aucklanders with and without experience of mental “illness” the question “what’s on your plate?”  After a year of collecting responses, artists Colleen Altagracia & Carolyn Milbank transformed them into an artistic installation that played on the Kiwiana tradition of “bringing a plate”.
