Arts in Mind was a week-long festival celebrating innovative collaborations between researchers at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) and the creative and cultural sector. It showcased work that explored new ways to improve wellbeing and facilitate a better understanding of mental health, the brain and the mind.
The festival featured over 40 exhibitions, performances, screenings and workshops (including workshops for local primary and secondary schools) on topics as diverse as psychological wellbeing in pregnancy to music and images as mood enhancers. It provided opportunities for immersive and unique, one-off experiences.
The Arts in Mind festival was 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.
