Ill patients dancing at a ball at Somerset County Asylum


The PAN Network would like to deepen the links between historians and practitioners by supporting a series of mini collaborative projects. Expressions of interest are invited from anyone interested in forming a partnership: historians, academics, archivists and museum curators, artists, musicians, creative writers, healthcare practitioners and anyone working on the borders and boundaries of these areas.

Each partnership is encouraged to meet (virtually) at least twice during the period January-June 2024, to share ideas and expertise, and to produce something small but tangible – a short written or creative piece that can be shared via the network.

Where possible, participants will be encouraged to share their experiences at the PAN conference on 20-21 June 2024.

Please send your expression of interest to the PAN team, including brief details of your personal and/ or professional interest in psychiatry and the arts, by 8 January. Any queries should also be sent to this email address.
