Are The Performing Arts Driving Us Mad?



Are our working practices endangering our mental health? In what way do they reflect unhealthy power relations and structural problems in society at large? How can we make our work practices safe for artists and arts workers with mental health issues? Can the performing arts be a leading force in re-shaping how society conceives of mental health? These are just some of the questions we will be exploring in this discussion about the relationship between our work, our art and our minds.
