About the Project

“A thousand happy faces” is a Positive Mindset Project inspired by the Irish saying “Go raigh mile maith agat” which roughly translates as “A thousand thank you’s”. The project is run by artist Shane O’Malley created to focus on & celebrate the happy moments in life.

‘Positive mental health to me is about changing your mindset and action, acting to create positive situations for your self. I spent a lot of time in negativity and the “A thousand happy faces” project” is one of my positive actions. Exploring an emoji as a form of communication the main focus of the project is to promote positivity. Taking the time to consciously create happy moments and share them ‘
