The Big Anxiety brings together artists, scientists and communities to question and re-imagine the state of mental health in the 21st century.
A radically new kind of international arts festival, in which every project is an open conversation, designed to promote curiosity, awareness and action, The Big Anxiety presents over 60 events across Greater Sydney, tackling the major anxieties of our times, as well as the stresses and strains of everyday life.
Whether through hi-tech interactive environments or one-on-one dialogues, our goal is to create the rich engagements we need for our collective mental health.
The Big Anxiety is an initiative of UNSW Sydney in association with the Black Dog Institute and over 25 partners in the cultural, education and health sectors.
White Space Concepts consulted closely with Professor Jill Bennett to create the marketing strategy for the Festival. With a simple focus on bringing art, science and people together, The Big Anxiety proved a huge success in moving how we deal with anxiety from simple awareness to lived experience.
