About Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival: Renfrewshire

Now in its 13th year, SMHAF is one of Scotland's most diverse cultural events, covering everything from music, film and visual art to theatre, dance, and literature. By engaging with artists, connecting with communities and forming collaborations, we celebrate the artistic achievements of people with experience of mental health issues, explore the relationship between creativity and the mind, and promote positive mental health and wellbeing.

Launched in 2007, SMHAF has grown into one of the largest festivals of its kind in the world, with over 300 events and 25,000 attendees across Scotland each year. Its innovative approach, combining high quality artistic events with community led programming and a social justice agenda, has been replicated internationally.
