Join us on World Mental Health Day for this special event hosted by the RSA Performing Arts Network where we will be screening a short documentary about The Alchemy Project.
The Alchemy Project offers a radical dance-led intervention model that provides transformational opportunities for young adults accessing Early Intervention in Psychosis services. The dance-led intervention has to date delivered clinically significant results in the wellbeing of participants. The intervention acts as a powerful catalyst for the recovery of mental health service users.
This event will be an opportunity to view the documentary with other Fellows, take part in a Q&A with Dr Lauren Gavaghan (ST5 Psychiatrist South London & Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust), who is one of the project's ambassadors, and Matthew Taylor, RSA Chief Executive.

About the network
The RSA Performing Arts Network is for the widest range of performing arts professionals in the RSA - those working in drama, dance, music, live art, opera, circus, and more. The aim is to consider the current role of the performing arts in the RSA, how we can contribute to there being more, and how we can increase awareness of the many ways in which work in the performing arts sector dovetails with the RSA's mission to enrich society through ideas and action. Meetings of the network have considered such topics as Verbatim Theatre projects, drama in schools, commissioning in the health sector, and community focus and funding. We believe that the performing arts sector is not just about entertainment, it empowers audiences with knowledge and new perceptions, and many practitioners’ work ties in closely with the ambitions of the Power to Create.
