New for 2016, Changing Minds festival explores mental health and the arts through a programme of performances music, design, talks, panel discussions and comedy. Subjects that are often considered taboo will be unpicked during the weekend-long event as well as the role art plays in understanding and healing matters of the mind. Highlights include a series of classical music concerts examining madness and memory and a pop-up studio curated by the students and alumni from the Royal College of Art's Design Interactions department. Top names on the bill include comedians Rob Delaney and Sofie Hagen, plus artists Jamie Baker and Stuart Semple. A number of free events will also take place in the Royal Festival Hall foyer spaces where visitors can find advice and support from leading mental health organisations. Visit the Southbank Centre website for the full lineup and advanced booking.
