The aims of our virtual art gallery are very similar to those of our physical exhibitions; by showcasing the artwork of those diagnosed with BPD we hope to:

  • Promote and celebrate the creative talent of the artists, as this:
    - Increases the self esteem of the artists
    - Encourages other people to view them as artists rather than just seeing a BPD label

 

  • Empower adults with BPD to raise awareness of BPD (if they wish to), as this can:
    - Decrease feelings of self-stigma
    - Increase confidence

  • Raise awareness and tackle the stigma of BPD, as:
    - Viewing images of firsthand BPD experiences helps people understand the reality of life with BPD (the images show the
      internal, invisible struggles that create the responses/behaviour that is so often misunderstood)
    - More understanding improves how those with BPD are treated by professionals and improve relationships with loved ones

If you have BPD and are interested in submitting your art to be shared on this page, please refer to the guidelines (in the PDF on the right), make sure you agree, and then email sarah@borderlinearts.org.uk for more information.
