NSSR Psych Ferenczi Center presents The Arts in Mind Festival/Moth StorySlam Day 2

11:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.

On Saturday March 16, at 11:00 a.m., leaders of innovative programs on the arts in mental health gather for a colloquy to share their lessons and questions. This session Includes representatives from Fountain Gallery, the Living Museum, the Austen Riggs Center, Access Programs of the Museum of Modern Art, and The Bridge.

At 2:00 p.m., join the bestselling author Lois Lowry and the scholar Ellen Handler Spitz for a conversation on what we can learn from the perennial controversies about children's books that are "too dark."  This event is co-sponsored by the School of Writing at the New School.

And at 4:00 p.m., the festival concludes with "What's Your Hang-Up," in which a psychologist and art critic investigate the work of two artists to try to determine their central preoccupations-their "hang-ups." The artists themselves will be on hand to respond and discuss. Featuring the artists Edwina White and Shantell Martin. Co-curated by Amanda Stern.

Arts in Mind is hosted by the Sandor Ferenczi Center at the New School and is made possible by support from the Erikson Institute for Education and Research at the Austen Riggs Center.
