The Big Anxiety Speaker Series – Brain Storms: Creativity and Mental Health

RMIT Culture2

Event Date: 6 October 2022
Author / Presenters: The Big Anxiety

Featuring an exciting line-up of expert creative thinkers, The Big Anxiety Speaker Series features conversations and performances exploring the major anxieties of our time.

This panel features creatives who have used their art to explore this issue that is at once ordinary and obscure. With host Stéphanie Kabanyana Kanyandekwe, Daniel Regan and Sally Hepworth will explore the way their recent work innovatively engages with the reality of complex mental health experiences, whether implicitly or explicitly.

Discussing the mechanics of representing the lived experience of mental health challenges and creating depictions that are authentic and relatable, yet free from stereotype or reduction, this will be an expansive conversation about the ways in which art can be used to explore and better understand the nuances of mental health.

This event is co-presented by RMIT Culture and The Wheeler Centre.
