Arts in Mind Education Scheme
The Arts in mind education scheme aims to bring together educators in the IoPPN with selected artists and cultural practitioners in order to explore creative, arts-based responses to key educational priorities identified by the faculty, including:
- Supporting students to engage in reflective practice
- Supporting students to self-identify and share mental health issues
- Supporting students to develop patient empathy and self-care
- Supporting students to develop creativity in academic work
To support applications to the scheme there was an initial ideas development workshop which was open to all educators at the IoPPN, selected student representatives, and invited artists and cultural practitioners. It offered the opportunity to consider the key challenges; begin to generate potential ideas and responses to the above priorities; and identify potential partners for collaboration.
Following this there was a competitive funding round, from which three projects were supported which will be delivered and evaluated in the 2017/18 academic year. These projects are:
- The @King’sIoPPN Virtual Gallery - Dr Dawn Albertson, Distance Learning, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience; Dr Catherine Lamont-Robinson, Curator and Artist; Ana Marques, Online Education Designer
Madlove – the Sensory Palette Tool Kit - Dr Jennifer Oates, Department of Mental Health Nursing; Hannah Hull and James Leadbitter, Madlove, Artists
Visualising Vulnerability - Dr Patricia Zunszain, Department of Psychological Medicine; The Liminal Space, Creative Constultants.
