In the article, Phyllidia Richards, senior supervisor at TWIGS (that provides space where people with mental illness can use their creativity) tells how their participation was enjoyable and important: "Not only does the exhibition help lift the stigma surrounding mental illness but it also helps our clients take important steps forward in their lives."

The article also mentioned that during Swindon Open Studios 2009, the Central Library where 8 artists were exhibiting had its highest number of visitors for a Sunday since it opened... A very concrete sign of the success of the event.
