Inside Out: Roundtable Discussion

6pm - 8.30pm

Join a panel of speakers for a discussion on art, nature and mental wellbeing.

The Inside Out: Roundtable Discussion brings together a range of speakers working at the intersection of public art, nature, and mental wellbeing as part of an event hosted by CREATURE (Research Centre in Creative Arts, Cultures and Engagement) at London Metropolitan University. 

Introductory presentations on the history of The Line and its recent Nature in Mind programme will be given by Megan Piper and Sheyamali Sudesh from The Line, and Aisha Johnson and Sarah Hyland from Mind in Tower Hamlets and Newham. This will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A session with the following guest speakers:

Farzana Khan, Executive Director and Co-founder of Healing Justice London

Dr Zoe Moula, Lecturer in Mental Health at King’s College London

Melissa Moore, artist and Course Director at London College of Fashion

Menka Sanghvi, mindfulness researcher and Senior Advisor at The Mindfulness Initiative.

A drinks reception will take place between 19:45-20:30, offering an opportunity for audience members to continue the conversation informally.

This event is part of a three-day public programme, Inside Out: Public Art, Nature and Mental Wellbeing. Inside Out builds on Madge Gill: Nature in Mind, a multi-site exhibition of the late Newham-based artist’s work and a series of creative workshops in collaboration with Mind. Focusing on the link between nature and mental health, The Line seeks to facilitate dialogues between artists, cultural organisations, and mental health specialists through an engaging three-day programme that consists of creative activities, site visits and a roundtable discussion.

This programme would not have been possible without the support of our partners and funders, London Metropolitan University, Mind Tower Hamlets and Newham, National Lottery Heritage Fund, St William, Royal Docks Team, London Borough of Newham, London Legacy Development Cooperation and Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
