Delighted to be exhibiting as part of this event along side fellow artist Iris Musel and participants on the Losing One's Sense of Self Project.
Arts in Mind is a week-long festival celebrating innovative collaborations between researchers at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) and the creative and cultural sector. It showcases work that explores new ways to improve wellbeing and facilitate a better understanding of mental health, the brain and the mind.
The festival features over 30 exhibitions, performances, screenings and workshops on topics as diverse as psychological wellbeing in pregnancy to music and images as mood enhancers.
Injury to the frontal lobe of the brain can cause profound changes to an individual’s personality and identity. Losing one’s sense of self is a collaboration between the IoPPN Department of Basic & Clinical Neuroscience and artists Isla Millar and Iris Musel, which explores these changes by using art as a research tool to help individuals communicate their lived experience. The exhibit includes works by the artists, as well as participants with experience of frontal lobe brain injury.
