RE:CREATE Psychiatry @ Wellcome Collection September-November 2016

We brought together a diverse crowd of clinicians, people with lived experience, artists, academics and researchers to participate in two dialogical events: Psychiatrists and their Patients: an ethos of doing with, a practice of doing to? in September and State of Emergency: is there space for empathy in a time of crisis? in November.

These conversations aimed to delve further into the questions raised by the Wellcome Collection’s ‘Bedlam: the asylum and beyond’ exhibition, displayed between September 2016 and January 2017.
