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

Spaghetti School at Free Space Gallery Spaghetti School started up again this March. We have more sessions in May, August and October. You can sign-up for these free workshops online. Workshops are free, but you must book a place to be on the course. We suggest signing up for the full 5 weeks of any block (May, August or October). We will be repeating August’s activities in October, so you do not need to sign up for both.
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!
