Lauren Saunders’ application to participate in the upcoming Ideas Hub residency was successful. Following written and video interviews, Lauren will be spending ‘a week at Wellcome Collection as part of a group of 15–20 people co-creating a programme of workshops, talks and project work to explore the theme of mental health, power and ownership’. The Ideas Hub is a transdisciplinary research centre and Lauren will be using her experiences and expertise to contribute towards the creation of new information about mental health.
This programme ‘will offer time out from [her] normal routine to think differently and engage deeply with the theme, collaborating with a network of creative leaders and practitioners from different sectors. [Her] ideas could lead to a publication, a public event, new research, or other partnerships and projects.’
This is due to take place in September, but may be delayed to Covid-19.
