The wonderful Other Side Gallery is organizing an event in partnership with South London & Maudsley NHS Trust and Community Learning at Tate Modern.

The event will start with a screening of “Thou Art” – a research and development film project exploring community-based art practice and its links to well-being and progression opportunities in the lives of mental health service users.

A panel discussion will follow debating the status of Outsider Art in the age of mass media with opportunity for audience discussion.

The panel will include Art historian Roger Cardinal and Professor Colin Rhodes with artists who will take questions from the audience. They will explore current issues including the blurred boundaries and ‘marginalised ‘versus ‘Outsider’ artists.
