The NHS Lothian Department of Spiritual Care “Community Mental Health Drop-in” has been taking place for over twenty years, meeting weekly at Augustine United Church on George IV Bridge.
Each year, from 2014 onwards, members of the drop-in have created sets of painted panels reflecting the different themes of the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival – three panels per year. The panels (paint on Perspex) have been placed in the glass doors that look out on to George IV Bridge, offering a bright interpretation of the theme for passers-by to enjoy and think about. Following the themes and images for 2014—18, we have created this online pilgrimage that you can use wherever you are able to take a little reflective space for yourself.
The 2014-18 themes were:
• Power (2014)
• Passion (2015)
• Time (2016)
• Reclaim (2017)
• Beginnings (2018)
The gallery below allows you to see every window in its complete form.
The booklet below allows you to explore details of the windows and reflect on the various themes contained within them. Alternatively, you can download the booklet by clicking here.
