York Festival of Ideas 2023

Monday 12 June 2023, 2pm to 3pm

If you're free on Monday 12th June come along to the fabulous "York Festival of Ideas" event about Reimagining Healthcare: Treating the body and mind at King's Manor, York.

Our very own Claire Carswell will be chairing a panel discussion to hear from people with lived experience of severe mental illness and chronic conditions - service users, carers and healthcare professionals - and to find out how and why our healthcare system needs to change. Panellists will include members of DIAMONDS Voice.

Another interesting Festival of Ideas event - ‘hidden’: Joanna

Tuesday 6 June 2023, 2pm to 7.45pm

‘hidden’: Joanna, produced by Made by Mortals in collaboration with people with lived experience of severe mental ill health, this immersive audio experience tells the story of Joanna, who uses mental health services and lacks digital skills. Put on the headphones, wear the blindfold and follow her journey as she tries to navigate a world where services and other aspects of daily life become increasingly digitised. Based on research findings and anchored in Made By Mortal's 'Theory Of Change', this experience challenges you to walk in Joanna’s shoes and think how you can help.

Sessions will take place from 2pm to 3.45pm, 4pm to 5.45pm and 6pm to 7.45pm. Please select a session when booking your ticket
