Another side event poster 2-01-01 On Thursday 12th July, we held a very special event in the CREATE exhibition in Science Gallery Dublin.

We were joined by CREATE artist, Emma Sheridan, who painted the beautiful ‘The Other Side’ for the exhibition, and Deirdre Madden, Advanced Nurse Practitioner in Perinatal Mental Health from the National Maternity Hospital in Holles St.

In a casual and intimate chat, Emma and Deirdre shared the story of how they came to know each other: through Emma’s experience of living with PTSD, OCD and depression, and how art and creativity helped her on her recovery journey.

After the chat, Emma lead an art workshop, where participants created and decorated masks for themselves, delving into the world of colour, expression and silliness, and challenging us to see another side of ourselves.
