Going beyond racial and religious boundaries, this travelling exhibition, Journey of the Mind, aims to evoke a sense of curiosity about the internal journey of the mind and its positive effects on people’s lives.
Guided tours are also available to be booked on our website; you will be able to experience the exhibition in a unique way, discovering and taking part in the spiritual journey of the mind.
Featuring figurative drawings and digitally created paintings by Canadian artist Kanwar Singh and short films by British animator Christian Wood.
Conceived by arts organisation WSWF, and supported by Arts Council England, Journey of the Mind brings Sikh teachings and heritage to a contemporary context to spark conversations and encourage exchange.
We live in difficult times. Struggling with constant pressure from a world where we are always connected through digital media but still suffer loneliness. Anxiously searching for peace, happiness and love from the external world.
The impact of Covid-19 has also left its mark on mental health. On top of this, concern for the health of the planet and social injustice have left many feeling hopeless.
This exhibition explores the texts of the Sikh teachers and how, through these, the journey to understand the mind begins. And how the mind battles against negative forces within, to find peace in troubled times through focused practice, community and selfless service.
Digital paintings and handmade drawings by Canadian artist Kanwar Singh and short films by British animator Christian Wood illustrate the stories of those who had attained the highest spiritual levels, which gave them the clarity and foresight to see all as one.
