Photography, Mental Health and Creative Expression, Arts SIG Conference – 11 December 2019

Join artists Daniel Regan and Antonia Attwood to learn about their creative arts practices in mental health and their work in social prescribing, and participate in two workshops on mindful making.

Photographic collage provides incredible freedom to be creative with images and designs. Many also find that this meditative, fun and relaxing process can be a gentle but deep method to encourage self-knowledge and reveal inner guidance in a way that goes beyond concepts and words. In the Intuitive Collage workshop delegates will learn how to create beautiful compositions, meaningful scenes and expressions of self through this soothing intuitive approach. Participants will be guided through the process of composing a personal, cut-out paper collage, and will come away with their own completed work and ideas for work to come. No artistic talent or experience required; just a willingness to explore.

The Drawing Sounds workshop aims to explore how sounds can alter affect. During the workshop participants will listen to a number of sounds and be asked to remain present, reacting to them using a number of dry materials (pens, pencils and pastels).
