The Salome Gallery is a unique and innovative project, turning a drab meeting room into a popular gallery space at the Social inclusion, Hope and Recovery Project (SHARP), a service based in Brixton working with people with psychosis. Since being established in 2011 it has exhibited the work of over 120 artists, many of whom use mental health services. The gallery has transformed the physical environment and the experiences for staff and service users at SHARP, as well as giving a platform for emerging artists to exhibit.
