Arts by the Sea festival is back Sept 2019 with a new artistic concept to explore, Mind Matter. The question that Arts by the Sea poses for 2019 is…

Is modern life conducive to a positive state of mind?

Today’s modern society which brings great social and technological advances, also brings with it even greater social pressures. Despite the UK’s status as one of the richest and most secure countries in the World, and a steadily increasing level of awareness about the importance of mental health, 1 in 4 of people in the UK will be affected by depression, anxiety and other mental health problems at some point in their life.

While life is arguably far easier than it was 50 years ago, mental illness is on the rise. Excessive workloads and pressures in the workplace have also led to the claim that the UK is experiencing a stress “epidemic”. The emergence of social media, which is particularly popular with young people and brings the desire to keep up with this ‘perfect’ unattainable image displayed on social platforms is at the forefront of mental health issues among the younger generation. Despite this, talking about mental health issues is still heavily stigmatised, and in many societies around the world, remains a taboo subject.
