Dwell Time launch the second edition of their award winning art publication reflecting on mental wellbeing.

Dwell time: The time a train spends at a scheduled stop without moving. Typically, this time is spent boarding or alighting passengers, but it may also be spent waiting for traffic ahead to clear, or idling time in order to get back on schedule.

Dwell Time Issue 2 Online Launch: Wednesday 15 July 2020

Covid-19 has put the world on hold and Dwell Time postponed their Issue 2 launches in March as the UK went into lockdown. In place of the live events scheduled in March, an online launch in July will feature their original film programme focussing on mental wellbeing.

The online launch programme features selected films by Lucy Barker & Ben NCM, Louis Benoit, Community Rail Cumbria, Robert C Clarke, Ralph Dartford, Leo Fernandez-Arias, Katie Gornall, Finn Harvor, Sophie Hoyle, Janet Lees, Maciej Piątek, Carolyn Richardson, Libby Scarlett.

Dwell Time’s YouTube Channel will feature the film programme from 12noon on Wednesday 15 July 2020. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9-326tuMzHL8qzJUQbHptA Discussions about the films are welcomed on the Dwell Time facebook and twitter pages from 12noon, welcoming feedback and comments about the films and the issues they raise plus links to related artworks and support. https://www.facebook.com/dwelltimepress/


Dwell Time Issue 2 will be available to order by post and a pdf download available from the Dwell Time website. The print publication and pdf are free with only postage costs applicable. https://dwelltimepress.wordpress.com/issue2/

Rowena Chantler, Community Rail Officer for Penistone Line Partnership commented: “We all experience pressures to our mental health at some point in our lives. Currently far too many people fear being judged or treated differently which stops them talking or reaching out for help. This project really promotes the discussion of mental health and we hope it will encourage people to start talking and reach out for help if it is needed.”
