Arts and Mental Health Exhibition Tour: ‘Traumascapes and Landscapes of the Interior’
3 August 2018

Join the Royal Society for Public Health’s Arts, Health and Wellbeing Special Interest Group as we take a guided tour of the ‘Traumascapes and Landscapes of the Interior’ exhibition.

The summer open exhibition is the Institute of Mental Health’s main event, and offers a platform for service users and artists who have an especial interest in mental health to show their work. The Arts can educate and raise consciousness as well as mediate in processes of social change and awareness, community engagement and personal well-being.

This exhibition will focus on trauma and catastrophe. We will hear from Dr Gary Winship, who will discuss the Institute of Mental Health and the role of the arts, before we take a guided tour of the exhibition, ending with a refreshment break and a chance to ask your questions.
