Organised by the Stuart Hall Foundation in partnership with the Centre on the Dynamics of Ethnicity (CoDE), this online discussion features James Nazroo, Fellow of the British Academy and Professor of Sociology at the University of Manchester, and award-winning director and choreographer, Lanre Malaolu, to explore the racial inequalities and injustices that surround mental health in the UK. The event will include an introduction from Child Psychotherapist, Psychoanalyst and Trustee of the Stuart Hall Foundation, Becky Hall.
The Covid-19 pandemic has magnified a disproportionate exposure to socio-political factors that impact mental health and well-being for ethnic minority communities. Research shows this includes employment insecurity, educational disenfranchisement, over-policed communities, and poor access to physical and mental healthcare. James and Lanre will examine these inequalities that cut across race and ethnic groups, how they are influenced by, class, and gender, and address experiences of mental health at an individual, institutional and national level. They will bring to the discussion perspectives shaped by their academic and creative work, to interrogate vulnerabilities, discuss resistance to socio-political determinants that compound mental ill-health, and consider opportunities for healing.
Event ticket holders will gain exclusive access to a recording of Lanre Malaolu’s Elephant in the Room performance, which was presented at the Annual Stuart Hall Public Conversation in 2018. This will be available to watch for a limited time during the two weeks leading up to the event.
Price: Free (donations welcome)
