Does Poetry Romanticise Mental Health?

Thu 07 May 2020 - 6:30 pm

A discussion and performance addressing the tension between creative expression and glamorisation.

In collaboration with the Festival of Debate & Kurious Arts, the University of Sheffield Poetry Society brings you night of spoken word with an informal discussion on the complexity of navigating mental health issues through poetry. 

Featuring performances from local poets, the we invite you to listen and share your thoughts on mental health themes in contemporary poetry. Is it a creative source of therapy or a toxic medium of glamorisation towards vulnerable individuals?
