Acting Out Nottingham 2015 is a festival that celebrates artistic expression through performative engagement at the interface of art and mental health through an investigation of the concept of 'acting out.'
Taking place through April and May, the festival is a curated programme of performance, exhibition, moving image, music and discussions – bringing together the arts and mental health. Generated by PSY, Acting Out Nottingham is based at the Institute of Inner Vision, London College of Communication, University of the Arts London.
The starting point for the programme is the contested term 'acting out', which connects psychological language with the rhetoric of social order and performativity. This exploration is intended to facilitate collaborations between arts and health disciplines in order to change the way that deviant behaviour is perceived.
There are numerous events taking place throughout the duration of the festival, so please click here for further event information.
