For CandleX, the Moodlab project has always been more than just an art project. It is a way for people in Beijing who have been affected by bipolar disorder to come together, shake off the stigma associated with bipolar disorder, and connect with likeminded people. The project started back in September 2016, and the photographs have already been exhibited around the world, been shortlisted for and won several competitions, and been published in magazines and articles – but this is the first time that they will be shown in Beijing, and accompanied by personal stories from the models themselves.
This event will be a chance to celebrate the CandleX community, meet old friends and mingle with some new faces, and meet the photographer and some of the models behind the award-winning photo series. We will also have a panel discussion where some of the people associated with the project will share their experiences and what getting involved has meant to them.
You’ll get a free drink with your ticket and the bar will be open all night. We also have a raffle with lots of amazing prizes generously donated by some of your favourite Beijing brands. Raffle tickets will be for sale at RMB30 for 1 or RMB50 for 2.
