Brighton’s White Night Festival ran annually between 2008-2011 on the night the clocks went back to celebrate the extra hour. White Night or Nuit Blanche is a series of international festivals which take place around the world.

 

I took part in the festival between 2009 and 2010 with experimental performance pieces with Dr Rosie Sedgwick at the Phoenix Gallery within a night of events curated by Anna Dumitriu.

In collaboration with Psychiatry trainee Dr Rosie Sedgwick, a creative space was produced to enable the public to engage with free writing their own 'flight of ideas' to create a sea of thoughts within the installation. The continuous stream of tangential thinking aided discussion of mental health issues and their associated symptoms.
