Media & Events

Due to the Covid-19 crisis, our main conference has been postponed until 21 and 22 April 2021. In the meantime, the Social Power and Mental Health steering group are running a range of online events, activities and exhibitions – all of which will be housed on this website.


If you are interested in putting together a blog post, sharing artwork, participating in an online panel, or if you have any other contributions you’d like to make that centres on social power and mental health, then please get in touch!




‘Hold Me in a Tender Circle of Listening’ – a sound installation produced by the Amanda McDowell – can be viewed here. The piece weaves together the oral testimonies of five women from the British Library’s ‘Mental Health Testimony’ project
