Event description

Description

Curated by Dr Deji Ayonrinde, Consultant Psychiatrist

Join us for the inaugural event in a specially curated programme of debates designed to promote active dialogue about national and global issues relevant to mental health, the arts and culture within the world’s oldest psychiatric institution, the Bethlem Royal Hospital. For 340 years, the statues 'Raving and Melancholy Madness', that formerly stood at the gates of the hospital from 1676 – 1815, have observed the evolution of society, science and psychiatry in deep contemplative silence. 

 

At last, the Raving and Melancholy debates will give them voice!
