Too Tired Project Slideshow Exhibitions are community-based art events. The goal is to bring people out from behind their computer screens and together in real life to share photography made in response to depression in order to open a dialogue about the subject and reduce associated stigma.
Recent events were held in Santa Fe, New Mexico; Canton, New York; Chicago, Illinois; and Warsaw, Poland.
Images are shown via a projector, and feature work that has been submitted to an open call specific to each city where the event is held. Approximately 50 curated images are featured per show. The slideshow itself can be viewed as a short film and runs 5-7 minutes long. The public is invited to come free of charge; 1-2 local photographers and a mental health professional take part in a panel discussion following the slideshow. The audience is encouraged to take part in a Q & A with the panel and each other. Each event lasts around two hours.
