Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival: What is Normality?

The Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival (SMHAF) is one of Scotland’s most diverse cultural events, covering everything from music, film and visual art to theatre, dance, and literature.

In 2021, SMHAF will take place from 3-23 May – online at and in regions across Scotland – and explore the theme of ‘Normality?’.

The aims of SMHAF are to:

  • challenge perceptions
  • make connections
  • develop audiences
  • encourage participation
  • create
