Join us for an evening of talks, presentations and a group discussion, sharing practice in working with mental health service users and organisations in museum learning.

Hosted by the wonderful National Maritime Museum we'll hear from the following speakers:

  • Katherine McAlpine and Sacha Coward from the National Maritime Museum learning team. Katherine and Sachs will be presenting on recent projects they've worked on with mental health service users and how they've collaborated with local organisation Greenwich Mind.

  • Doris Holloway from Greenwich Mind. Talking about working in partnership on projects with museums.

  • Artist Liz Atkin. Liz is a visual artist based in London. She is an advocate for Compulsive Skin Picking and mental illness, de-stigmitising these conditions via public talks, specialist commissions, residencies and exhibitions. She will be talking about her experience of working with museums along with other projects.

  • Miranda Stearn, Head of Learning, Fitzwiliam Museum, University of Cambridge Museums'. Miranda will be talking about working together with Arts and Minds, a Cambridgeshire mental health charity. Arts and Minds, has extensive experience delivering Arts on Prescription activity in Cambridgeshire. In 2016, working with the University of Cambridge Museums and other ruegional heritage sites, the organisation secured Heritage Lottery Funding to deliver a new model building on previous practice but adding a new dimension: visits to museums and heritage sites as an embedded part of the social prescribing model.

  • Emilia Raczkowska from the Freud Museum Education team.

  • Information will also be available from the National Alliance for Museums Health and Wellbeing.

There will also be an opportunity to have group discussions and share your own experience of project work.
