Art Of The Mind - Panel Discussion

This event has passed

We live in challenging times. Struggling with constant pressure from a world where we are always connected through digital media, we suffer loneliness and social fragmentation while anxiously searching for peace, happiness and love in the world around us.

This panel discussion connects art, spirituality and mental wellbeing through the exploration of the mind. Panellists include Sikh artist Kanwar Singh, ex Vogue/Dazed creative and the curator of Journey of the Mind Deep Kailey, along with Artist and Educator, Navi Kaur.

Art of the Mind is part of the wider public programme to accompany the Journey of the Mind exhibition at the Library of Birmingham which highlights the ways Sikh teachings inform a journey to understand the mind. The exhibition explores how the mind battles against negative forces within in order to find peace in troubled times. Paintings by artist Kanwar Singh and short films by animator Christian Wood illustrate the stories of those who attained the highest spiritual levels that afforded them the clarity and foresight to understand the world from an alternative perspective.

Both the talk and exhibition go beyond cultural and racial boundaries in stimulating the curiosity to explore the idea that we have everything that we need within us to achieve peace and inner wisdom.

This is a free event.

This event is part of BEDLAM Arts & Mental Health Festival 2021.
