Event description

Description

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?


#2 Myth of the Creative Genius

Thursday 22nd February, 18:30
Drama is often fetishised, with the image of the high-profile tortured genius promoting the idea that “the more you suffer, the better your art”. How does that idea relate to the real world experience of achieving your creative goals? Are creative people more prone to mental health conditions?

Join us for this panel discussion facilitated by Richard Warden.

Facilitator: Richard Warden
In his role as Film Curator for the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival, Richard has programmed over a dozen films that specifically explore creativity and mental health, as well as leading post-screening discussions. As Film Lead for the UK Mental Health Foundation, Richard organised and chaired 'The Myth of the Mad Genius' panel discussion at the organisation's annual arts and mental health symposium. Richard is also an independent film producer making documentaries through his production company, Middlefish Films.

Panelists:

Andrew Ferguson // Nomine aka Outrage (Tempa, Metalheadz, Rinse FM)
Prior to launching his own label, Nomine Sound, Andrew Ferguson spent the first 15 years of his career propagating jungle and drum & bass, first as Rage then as Outrage. Forming alliances with artists like AMIT and Digital, as well as a relationship with Rinse FM that extends back to the station's early pirate days, Andrew's backstory and catalogue are impressive. In 2016 he created Education & Bass, which combines music and arts education with live performances, workshops, seminars, guest lecturers and a supportive online platform.

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.
