“Shall We Talk at M+” is a collaboration between Shall We Talk initiative and M+, this programme encourages young people to speak openly about and seek appropriate support for their mental well-being if necessary, through free learning activities for full-time students from local tertiary institutions, including universities and higher education institutions.

'Shall We Talk at M+' delves into visionary artist Yayoi Kusama's career and the depth and healing power of her art. Kusama's works not only communicate to the world her struggles with mental health but also spread positive healing messages. Through activities centred around her worldview, we hope to inspire new perspectives about life.

Complimentary tickets to Special Exhibition 'Yayoi Kusama: 1945 to Now' will be available on a first-come, first-served basis from 17 March until 14 May 2023. Eligible students may redeem tickets at M+’s Ground Floor Information Desk until 17:15 on Tuesdays to Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays, and until 21:15 on Fridays by presenting a valid student card. Pre-registration is not required.

Apart from free access to the exhibition, students may join free guided tours, free expressive art workshops, and a free talk. 'Shall We Talk at M+' serves as a platform for students to explore creativity and self-expression and aims to promote well-being across the community and fight against stigma surrounding mental health issues.
