White Noise: Mental Health Week 2017

8 May 2017 to 12 May 2017


White Noise is a series of events, lectures and exhibitions running from the 8–12 May at the Royal College of Art to celebrate National Mental Health Week.

Mental illness often breeds forms of creativity and White Noise will be a platform for students and alumni to showcase their creative work, which is inspired and underpinned by personal experiences of mental health. The weeklong series will also explore the ethical dilemmas surrounding the production of art and mental illness, as well as exposing the social and personal impact mental health can have on an individual.

Featuring work from across all of the Schools at the RCA, White Noise will challenge and destigmatise mental illness with an innovative week of conversation, action and reflection.

Private View: Tuesday 9 May 6–9pm including performances and talks by exhibiting artists.
