Event programme

If you are joining us on the day, you can find the workshop programme for your age group through these links:

This event is an important space for young people, artists, mental health professionals, youth workers, cultural providers, and researchers to be in the same room and share how we can work more closely, share knowledge, access resources more easily and collectively imagine how art can serve young people and their mental health.

It is a space to dream big, imagine something not yet real and listen to each other’s experiences, achievements, and ambitions for mental health support in London.

 

Art is the expression of human creative skill and imagination; it acts as a mechanism for social change by producing work that holds emotional power with the ability to influence how people think and feel.
