Visual artist Jan Rothuizen chats about Manchester, its neighbourhoods, its streets and buildings, parks and public transport, and all of these can affect our mental health. He will be joined by the people who helped him create his new project Manchester Mood Drawings for MINDSCAPES. Whilst creating their new projects, our MINDSCAPES commissioned artists worked with individuals and communities from across Manchester who have deep personal or professional knowledge of the relationship between mental health and the places they live.

Jan Rothuizen is a visual artist whose work layers detailed observation of the physical environment with deep research into the personal experiences and perspectives of the people who live there. Combining drawing with text, his works have been translated into English, Spanish and Chinese. Projects have been presented in the contexts of film festivals, museums and galleries. He made the inter-active award-winning documentary Refugee Republic about a refugee camp in Iraq and the VR animated film Drawing Room.
