A selection of digital and hand drawn memes, created by primary and secondary school kids, to capture their current feelings and draw attention to their mental health – #Mood.
Students from across London joined together with Culture Mile – the City of London’s new cultural district – and the City of London Family of Schools, produced by Aphra Shemza from Art in Flux – a nonprofit on a mission to develop media arts in the UK – to take part in the interactive digital artwork during May  Mental Health Awareness Week.
The #Mood project was developed in lockdown to teach students how to use a range of media to communicate how they are feeling at this pivotal moment in history.
Stuart Batchelor, Artist, for Culture Mile says: “As an artist, the opportunity to work with and teach the students about software art was something I was really excited about. The #Mood project gave students an outlet to create during the pandemic and highlighted the importance of art adapting to global circumstances. It turned something isolating into a positive, social and creative experience.”
