We are delighted to announce that The Dust of Everyday Life, our symposium on the arts, mental health, stigma, and social justice, will return to the Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow, on Wednesday 20 April.

Programmed by the Mental Health Foundation and See Me, The Dust of Everyday Life brings together people from the health sector and the arts sector to share ideas – and to help shape the programming of the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival, now in its tenth year. Tickets for the event are free but must be reserved in advance.

This year’s Dust of Everyday Life is set to include sessions on children and mental health, film, visual art, architecture, transgender lives (as part of our partnership with the National Theatre of Scotland’s Eve/Adam project), and One Thinks of It All as a Dream, Alan Bissett’s new play about Syd Barrett, commissioned for this year’s Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival.

Tickets will be made available when the full programme is announced on Tuesday 15 March. Tickets for last year’s event were all claimed within 48 hours of the programme being announced so we strongly advise you to save the date in your diary now and book early!
