MONSTER - Mutate Your Expectations

Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN), Denmark Hill Campus, London

6 Jun monster-main Part of the Arts in Mind Festival

This event is free but booking is essential.                                  

This workshop invites you to create photographs exploring how social and cultural expectations around fertility and gender influence our attitudes to the menopause or early menopause. It is inspired by research suggesting that anxiety and depression, often reported as symptoms of the menopause, may not just be the result of hormonal change. Rather, they may also be responses to social and cultural pressure and outdated gender expectations.

The workshop will be led by award-winning film and television writer/director Laura Smith in collaboration with Emeritus Professor Myra Hunter, international expert on menopause and women’s health.
