Come and join creating with our hands together and to express your mind on the state of student’s mental health! At the event it is possible to write, colour and also to continue the community knitting.

With this event we want to bring to light how important student’s mental health is and to encourage to nourish mind and to strengthen the communality of our students. Come to visit and join creating something with your hands and to test your creativity. There will be a coffee serving.
