In 2018, Head Above Water made a dramatic change to the London skyline, with panoramic views of St Pauls and the iconic city skyline. It stood as a symbol of hope, bravery, compassion and positivity, supporting Time to Change’s campaign to remove the stigma of mental illness.
It was both a physical and a phycological shelter.
It showed that we, as a society do care, do want to help and that you are not alone. Working with the IOPPN, HAW was lit with colours/moods reflecting 14 emotions from Love or Hate, to Happy or Sad. You could tweet an 'emotion' and within 2 secs the colour changed.
