New online exhibition by Kathy Kendall

Published: 12 January 2017

Kathy Kendall has contributed an online exhibition to a newly launched and ground-breaking website entitled ‘After the Asylum’.


The website documents the complex and difficult history of psychiatric deinstitutionalisation in Canada through a rich mosaic of stories, artefacts and analyses . The web pages have been co-created by academics, community partners, students, activists, and people whose lives have intersected with de-institutionalisation in various ways.

Kathy’s exhibition, 'Educating Indian Head', is based on published research she undertook in her home province of Saskatchewan. It documents a bold but failed experiment in the small town of Indian Head during the 1950s to reduce stigma surrounding mental health.

To see Kathy’s exhibit please go to The 'After the Asylum' website can be found at
