About this Event

Edinburgh Napier University is proud to host Help for Heroes' Creative Force (Scotland) exhibition at its historic Craiglockhart Campus.

Help for Heroes will showcase how creativity can benefit mental and physical well-being through our Creative Force Scotland exhibition. This exhibition features a variety of works by Veterans and their families, living in Scotland, who have all benefited from the role creativity has played in expressing unexplored emotions and helping ongoing recovery from physical and psychological injuries.

This event provides a wonderful opportunity to view the art and engage with the artists at the site where World War One Officers, including Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon, were also encouraged to explore creativity as a means to alleviate the symptoms of Neurasthenia (shell shock) at Craiglockhart Military Hospital.

Launch Event Schedule:

1800hrs: Arrival/Canapes reception

1845hrs: Welcome speeches followed by a short performance from Stand Easy Productions

View the exhibition and meet the artists
