Health, Anxiety and Capitalism

Health, Anxiety and Capitalism

Last year, The Culture Capital Exchange launched an Arts and Health Forum as a platform to be used by our member researchers, staff as well as those working in the arts, cultural sectors and/or health related fields.

So far the forum has been used to host physical events, and it has also catalysed peer-to-peer discussions as well as horizon scan for funding bids. It also acts as a mini-hub within the network to bring researchers together with interests in this area.

This academic year, they are continuing the work of the forum with a series of activities over the coming months focusing on some critical themes including: Anxiety and Capitalism, Neurodiversity and Creativity and Walking.

The first roundtable event Health, Anxiety and Capitalism will be opened by presentations from Dr Catherine Maffioletti (Ravensbourne University London), Dr Ayesha Ahmad(University College London, St George's University of London), Dr Dan Taylor (Goldsmiths University), Tamar Shlaim (Marketing Director, Repeater Books).

Using the recent publication of the book k-punk: The Collected and Unpublished Writings of Mark Fisher (Repeater Books, November 2018) as a starting point, we will explore how mental health issues can be understood as systemic within neo-liberalism, and how collectively envisaging concepts of leisure in a post-capitalist world can impact wellbeing.

The event is aimed at researchers, artists and creative practitioners, working with or interested in radical approaches to health and wellbeing.

All participants will have the opportunity to share their research/practice interests, and discuss the future direction and potential of Anxiety and Capitalism as an ongoing thematic within the forum.

Please note: If you are an academic from a non-member institution please get in touch before reserving your place.

If you are unable to attend please let us know as soon as possible so we can free up the space for somebody else.

The Artist's Journey. Which way is it now?

Being an artist can take you to places you never thought were possible, but the paths are unclear and the maps complicated. Come on a trip that treads the routes that artists take, goes back to places we have all been before, and shares the picnics along the way to help us plan the next excursions.

This conference forms part of Making Ways, delivered through a partnership with Sheffield Hallam University and Yorkshire and Humber Visual Arts Network (YVAN) with additional support from Bloc Projects and Yorkshire Artspace.
