ReCP @ Arts in Mind

Collaborative Strivings, Measurable Parities, and Mutual Resistance: the relationship between the arts and mental health in clinical practice

A RE:CREATE Psychiatry dialogue to conclude the IoPPN’s Arts in Mind Festival

Sunday 10th June from 2pm to 4pm. All mental health professionals and those with lived experience invited.

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? Are these collaborations taken seriously?

Join us for a lively dialogue which will bring together people with lived experience of psychiatry and lived experience of the arts to identify the obstacles to these art-medical collaborations becoming embedded in clinical practice. And, to collectively envision brave new ways in which clinical practice can be informed by art thinking.

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.

The event takes place on Sunday 10th June from 2pm to 4pm at the Robin Murray Lecture Theatre, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, King’s College London, Denmark Hill Campus, 16 De Crespigny Park, SE5 8AF. Directions available here.
