This event is free but booking is essential.
What goes into the fabric of a successful collaboration between the arts and clinical practice? What makes it meaningful and how should this be measured? And are these collaborations taken seriously?
Join us for a lively discussion event, curated in collaboration with RE:CREATE Psychiatry, a service-user-led exploratory platform based in and out of The Dragon Café, which brings together people with lived experience of mental ill-health and medical professionals to stimulate reciprocal dialogue, mutual support, and collaboration.
The dialogue will feature contributions from Rebecca Gordon-Nesbitt, parliamentary researcher and author of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Arts, Health, and Wellbeing Report; David O’Flynn, Chair of the Adamson Collection and Consultant Psychiatrist in Rehabilitation and Challenging Behaviour, SLaM; Sally Marlow, radio broadcaster and addictions researcher, KCL; Stan Papoulias, Assistant Director of the Service User Research Enterprise, IoPPN; Peter MacRae and Hannah Ali from RCPsych’s Art Special Interest Group; Matthew Swann, CEO of the City of London Sinfonia; RE:CREATE Psychiatry Founding Members Lauren Gavaghan, Consultant Psychiatrist, and Susan Young, animation and mental health researcher, Royal College of Art; and Mao Fong Lim, medical student and the event’s Artist in Residence.
