Psyche On The Skin: Art And History

Time: 18:00 - 19:30

Part of Scratch the Surface - DIALOGUE 2017 mental health arts festival, curated by Collective//Pod

Self-harm is often thought to be a modern epidemic, associated with social changes, mass media, the internet and the challenges of adolescence. But what can we learn from the history of a phenomenon that was first categorised over 150 years ago? And how can art and literature inform our understanding of mental health and illness and support us through it?
Join historian and self-harm survivor Sarah Chaney and visual artist and Compulsive Skin Picking advocate Liz Atkin for an evening of performance and discussion exploring the multiple meanings of self-injury, and the differences between self-harm and compulsive skin-picking.
