The Green Ribbon Project 2020 – 2022

Freelance artist Megg Evans announces that three large dreamcatchers will become emblems of inspiration for creative workshops designed for Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).

Megg Evans is a multimedia artist based in Dorset, UK. Rooted in the therapeutic arts, Meg’s photographic work often depicts tangible processing and communication.

I favour nature and the immersive affect it brings me, exploring the constructs of self-exploration and the wider context of conservation. These concepts are echoed in my artworks that involve paint, drawing and sculpture made from beach debris and plastic waste to further explore visual communication and expression. I have been able to channel my 3D artwork into a small business, Alucinor, creating intricate dreamcatcher jewellery and wall hangings.

A couple of years ago Meg began The Green Ribbon Project by creating a themed dreamcatcher for World Mental Health Day 2018, this raised money for the national Mind charity.

For World Mental Health Day 2020 Meg revived the project to fundraise locally for Dorset Mind by making a large Green Ribbon themed dreamcatcher, and giving the 2018 creation as a prize draw for one of the donators.

The concept driving the project is to raise awareness and promote creativity and inclusion for people living with mental health conditions.

On World Mental Health Day 10/10/2020 Megg  finished the creation by dedicating; 21hrs 25mins of Weaving, 605 Beads, 34 Sequins, 133 meters of Embroidery Thread, 20.2 metres of Green Ribbon and 22.7 metres of Green Velvet Strips!

Following discussions with local community groups and art therapists a location for the 2020 dreamcatcher was decided and to Meg’s delight a further two large dreamcatchers were requested. It is with sincerity and great thanks that Meg can announce the three large dreamcatchers will become emblems of inspiration for creative workshops designed for Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services.
