At the start of June Four Culture worked on a fascinating week-long festival at King’s College London’s Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience at, in Denmark Hill South London.
Through a series of enlightening exhibitions, intimate experiences, film screenings, expert talks and immersive workshops, the Arts in Mind festival showcased innovative collaborations between academics and the creative sector, facilitated by King’s Cultural Institute. From an ADHD inspired tapestry to A Mindful Movement Safari, together they explored new ways to understand the mind and the brain, to open up dialogue around mental health and to improve wellbeing.
The team produced a one hour takeover for Resonance F.M. in the week of the festival, featuring contributions by Dr Sally Marlow, King’s artists in residence Kai Syng Tan and Teresa Albor and the pianist Christina McMaster. You can listen to the discussion here.
You can find out more about Arts In Mind here, and keep an eye out for a showcase by all six King’s artists in residence at Bush House in the autumn! The festival is no longer on, but you can still check out some of the events running until later dates here.
