Event description

Description

For our next dBs Dialogues series we’re talking about mental health in the creative industries we teach. How does this affect the lives and future careers of our students? Do they have the tools to support themselves and others? What can we do as an industry to change the narrative?


#1 Self medicating and harm reduction

Thursday 25th January, 18:30
Berlin is a nightlife mecca, providing not just an endless opportunity to party but an extensive network of professional venues, clubs, artists, bookers & labels essential to the careers of our students. How do you keep a healthy balance when combining socialising and work? What are the risks of self medicating? What is harm reduction and how does it work?

Join us for this panel discussion facilitated by Anna Codrea-Rado.

Facilitator: Anna Codrea-Rado.
Anna is an independent journalist with ten years experience covering youth culture, the arts, mental health, and social justice for The New York Times, Guardian, VICE, New York Mag and more. She writes about many things to do with youth culture, but has a particular focus on drugs and harm reduction. Amongst other harm reduction panels, she most recently moderated a panel at SXSW 2017 about what music festivals can do to prevent drug deaths.


Mental health is an incredibly broad and complicated subject. In order to help focus the conversations each event is centred around a different topic: self medicating and harm reduction (January), myth of the creative genius (February), living with others (March) and the industry and enrivonment (April). Each panel is a mix of students, tutors, guests and professional facilitator.

Places are limited for this free event.
