How does the story of George III’s treatment at Kew Palace inform discussion of male mental health today? 🧠
For our exhibition #MindBehindTheMyth, we partnered with local community groups to interpret some of the objects on display, reflecting on how what we know about George’s ill health speaks to mens’ lived experiences in 21st-century London. Over a series of sessions, the group found out more about George III’s story, explored their own mental health journeys, and contributed directly to the final exhibition with object labels offering personal and creative responses.
In a special blog, freelance photographic artist and group facilitator Daniel Regan reflects on his experience with the group, and shares photographs of the time they spent working together. Read here 👉 bit.ly/mindbehindthemyth-blog
