MENTAL SPAGHETTI promotes marginalised artists and encourages participation in the arts. It is an ongoing project, led by multidisciplinary artist, Marie-Louise Plum.
We do three things:
| Use our strong online presence as a platform for marginalised ARTISTS.
| Curate group EXHIBITIONS to showcase marginalised artists.
| Facilitate creative WORKSHOPS for all, with a committed focus on inclusivity.

Roving Diagnostic Unit at William Morris Gallery
Over the last year Mental Spaghetti has been working with some fine artists and the Daily Life Ltd team, to scrutinise, digest and diagnose diagnosis itself. It’s an immense pleasure to be working on this project, and to interact with a wide audience of both fellow mental health and arts travellers, and new visitors, who may have never participated in anything quite like the RDU before.
Please do watch the video above, and look out for more Roving Diagnostic Unit visits in a space near you!
