Who we are & why we are

Welcome to the gallery site of Broken Light Collective. We are artists of all levels and abilities who are affected by mental illness. We create and we share our work for the therapeutic benefits to us, as well as others who may be struggling and feeling scared and alone. Together we can move from disconnected to collective.

Photo by Christopher Scott & Viviana Urvina. Christopher Scott is an award winning internationally recognised social awareness poster designer from Northern Ireland. His work has been exhibited all over the world including the Louvre Paris, Triennale Milan, Peru, Korea, USA and many more. Paramount to his designs is for them to have substance that communicate a strong and meaningful message. His sensitivity and passion make him a unique designer who has humanity at the very core of his work.

About the photo: Personally I have had a life changing event from a family member having mental health issues when I was a child. It could have turned into something very negative for me and I could have gone down a very dark path. However, I decided to turn it into something positive for myself and it made me a stronger person. So I would not change my childhood for anything. It made me who I am today. The advice I would give to someone who has a family member or friend who has mental health issues: You can look at the dark or the light.
