For the first time, we are participating in an Erasmus Project (EU exchange for the Youth) to create a large-scale participatory mural on a wall belonging to the oldest mental health hospital in Spain. Located in St Boi, Cataluña, the hospital is a miniature city in itself with building representing different periods.
Three groups of young people will descend from Sweden, Holland and UK to join a team of local artists based in St Boi. Together we will develop ideas for the wall that divides de Hospital with the town, which has been covered with tagging and insults from floor to the top. Our aim will be to come up with a design that touches of the theme of taboos around mental health in a way that it might integrate the city and the hospital in a more positive way.
