What you’ll do
Join us for a personal and powerful performance of “Is It Wilful Ignorance That Enables Psychiatry To Disregard Racism?”. The performance, by artist Dolly Sen explores how racism and being racialised affects mental health.
There will be a panel discussion afterwards exploring why seeking support for mental distress is often more destructive for racialised communities. You will have the opportunity to participate and share your thoughts if you want to.
The performance includes strong and sexual language, and historical references to abuse and violence, mental health and identity-based discrimination.
A Chill-Out Room will be available during the event. There will be low lighting, comfortable seating, cushions and mats, ear defenders, earplugs, board games and sensory toys.
Filming will be taking place during the event for documentation purposes. You can speak to a member of staff on the day or get in touch with any questions if you would like to ensure you are not recorded.
