'Mapping Well/Being' was a series of workshops and a common space to map how we experience mental wellness, mental illness, disability, and the effects of neoliberal discourse around mental health in the university, which individualises 'self-care' ignoring systemic issues. Students engaged in guided exercises to explore different elements of 'wellbeing/ and disability support around the Goldsmiths campusThe workshops culminated in an exhibition and celebration of the work and ideas which emerged from them, including an artist talk by Leah Clements.
