Psykiatrisk Center Amagers Projekt Råkunst

Håbet 50 

The project collects and exhibits the works of (primarily) local outsider artists. It is the vision and hope of the project that this act will

  • put the (creative) activities of people med mental illness into focus;
  • create an area within the center with an atmosphere that could work in healing and transforming ways by inviting to reflection, empathy and recognition;
  • support and stimulate the creative development, the individual and social empowerment and the recovery processes of those people with mental illnesses in (primarily) the local area that are invited to exhibit;
  • set an example for how an including, wholeness-oriented perspective on people with mental illnesses can also function and appear;
  • create a living and scholarly respected show room for outsider art, thereby also contributing to the development and of this particular art genre;
  • establish a properly documented collection of outsider art with a history that will be valuable in its own right.
