Creative CollisionsPosted: March 20, 2014
This panel discussion brings together mental health practitioners with artists, funders and researchers to discuss some of the ‘creative collisions’ that can arise out of shared participatory arts and mental health interdisciplinary encounters.
The discussion takes the SLG’s Creative Families project with the local health trust’s Parental Mental Health Team as its starting point.
Artist Lawrence Bradby, works as half of the collaborative practice Townley and Bradby, who make games, guided walks and live events. Townley and Bradby are currently researching how to sustain an artistic practice whilst raising a family.
Dr Alison Rooke is the Director of Centre for Urban and Community Research, Goldsmiths University. Rooke works in partnership with a range of arts organisations and institutions developing critical and collaborative approaches to research and evaluation.
Chris McCree is responsible for implementing the Southwark Mental Health Family Strategy and managed the Parental Mental Health in Children’s Centre team.
Davina Drummond is an artist, educator and mother. She creates site or date specific relational works, often incorporating the use of text and textiles. Drummond’s practice explores modes of making artworks, which involve the process of social interactions and creative collaborations with others in gallery, non-gallery spaces and educational settings.
