About the event

Love Arts wants to help Leeds become a mentally healthy place to live in. And this is really important for artists and creaitve people. How can we work together to help make an arts world that really looks out for our mental health?

We'll hear some from some inspirational people about things they are doing around the arts and mental well-being. We'll talk about how we can all create a culture where we think about how what we're doing affects other people mentally. 

Who we'll hear from:

Gemma Carlier

Gemma Carlier, director at Aire Place Studios. Working class activist and passionate about creative solutions to mental health.

Alice Gilmore

Alice is the Community Partnerships & Access Officer at Opera North and runs Arts Together, which brings together a huge variety of brilliant arts organisations in Leeds that focus on people and accessibility. 

Lydia Catterall

Through all she does, Lydia aims to reveal, support and champion creative brains, transforming the make-up of where we live. Whether operating as an artist, researcher, collaborator, writer or facilitator, she works for the recognition of the inherent value of artists across sectors and the deepening of a strong artistic economy. She is based in Leeds.

Alice Bradshaw

Alice Bradshaw is an artist, curator and writer. She is co-founding director of Dwell Time, an arts publication reflecting on mental wellbeing, and curator of Art Lab, a monthly peer support event bringing artists together to discuss their work.

We'll get a chance to talk about the issues and come up with ideas together in small groups. Think about what you do to keep going in the difficult time. How can we learn from each other? And what can we do to help each other? This is a conversation - we want to hear what you've got to say.
