Mental health and creativity: facts and fictions

This event has finished Took place on: Friday, 28th Jun 2019

‘Madness is a gift from the gods’, as Plato put it. But is this view a misleading, even dangerous one? And what place should art and creativity have in responding to today’s mental illness epidemic?

At this special event, a panel of experts explores the science claiming a correlation between art practice and mental wellbeing and asks, does mental angst create great art?

Chaired by Principal and Chief Executive of the City Lit Mark Malcomson. Panellists to be confirmed.

Cost: £10
