UCLA is proud to join others across the world to raise awareness for depression on April 7, 2017, in commemoration of World Health Day. This year’s World Health Day, organized by the World Health Organization (WHO), is focused on mobilizing action on depression with the theme “Depression: Let’s Talk“.

In the week leading up to World Health Day, in a work commissioned by the Depression Grand Challenge, UCLA fosters discussion about depression by way of an interactive art installation.

About the Expanding Dialogue Installation

The interactive art installation, named Expanding Dialogue, serves as a physical manifestation of conversation at UCLA as it relates to and reflects on the topic of depression and mental health. The piece is named Expanding Dialogue because it invites passersby to physically add to the conversation piece-by-piece. As they share their thoughts in written or sketch form on pieces of corrugated plastic available on site, participants are then welcome to fit their pieces into the installation, wherever they choose.
