On behalf of the Depression Grand Challenge, thank you to all who participated in the “Expanding Dialogue” interactive art installation in the week leading up to World Health Day. The purpose of the installation was to engage the campus in a conversation about depression and commemorate World Health Day on April 7, 2017. Throughout the week leading up to World Health Day, hundreds of people interacted with the art installation by sharing drawings, thoughts and encouragement relating to depression, the focus of World Health Day.
The Depression Grand Challenge has found a new home for “Expanding Dialogue” – the Powell Library rotunda. Our hope is that students and passersby are prompted to engage their own dialogues about mental health. Although World Health Day has passed, this physical manifestation of UCLA’s #ExpandingDialogue will continue to raise awareness about depression and remind the campus that the conversation surrounding depression should not stop here.
Come to the Powell Library rotunda to visit “Expanding Dialogue” created by Kristin McWharter, UCLA Design and Media Arts Graduate Student.
