Moonstruck Exhibition Launch

About Moonstruck Exhibition Launch

This event celebrates the launch of our exhibition, 'Moonstruck: 500 years of mental health'

The event will begin in our foyer with a drinks reception. You will then have the opportunity to hear two speakers, Jo McFarlane and Dr Allan Beveridge. Jo will discuss her lived experiences of mental health while Allan will uncover the use of illustrations of nineteenth-century asylum patients in their diagnosis. The drinks reception will then continue with tours of our new exhibition.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Moonstruck Exhibition Launch are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
