Arts in Mind is a week-long festival celebrating innovative collaborations between researchers at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) and the creative and cultural sector. It showcases work that explores new ways to improve wellbeing and facilitate a better understanding of mental health, the brain and the mind. 

The festival features over 30 exhibitions, performances, screenings and workshops such as Sound Mind , a unique concert and Virtual Reality experience. Talking Heads , an exhibition of works exploring the phenomenon of hearing voices and hallucination through drawings and sound. Without Touch , a short multi-sensory piece which invites the audience to experience stories and memories of prolonged tactile deprivation and Losing one’s sense of self, a workshop exploring the effects of frontal lobe brain damage.

 The events and workshops that make up the festival provide an opportunity to immerse audiences in a unique series of one-off experiences. Find out more about the events happening throughout this week, there is still space to sign up and get involved.

The Arts in Mind festival has been produced and delivered by King's College London's Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, working with the university's specialist Culture team, and marks the 20th anniversary of the IoPPN joining King’s. The festival also coincides with Creativity and Wellbeing Week.
