Discover how art has the power to bring hope, joy and spark inspiration

Art, in its many forms, can touch us on different levels – a deep or fleeting connection. Join us for a panel discussion about art and how it can bring hope, provide a balm or excite inspiration. Our panel will explore these issues drawing on their own artistic practice and personal experience.

This event is a partnership between Tate Liverpool and James’ Place - a charity providing therapeutic support to men facing suicidal crisis in Liverpool. All the proceeds will go to James’ Place.
