The event features a screening of short films, presentations and Q&As by project leaders and participants of the Inna Vision Film School.
Inna Vision Film School has been a year long participatory project based in East London, working with adults with lived experience of mental health issues, with a particular focus on African and Caribbean communities. The participants have produced short films during the process, touching on various aspects of mental health experience and ideas of well-being. The films are being shown in a series of screenings to engage audiences in discussion and with the goal of challenging stigma and discrimination around mental health.
There will be a particular focus on the process of the project, the challenges and the strengths of the model adopted, the outcomes and outputs for participants and partners, and lessons to be learned for other participatory
The programme is run by the charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, and funded by the Department of Health and Comic Relief.
Participatory Film in Action is a regular event curated by London Met Digital Media lecturer and filmmaker Suzanne Cohen.
