Psychotherapy Sussex’s Art Forum was set up in 2001. The aim is to encourage an on-going dialogue between those involved or interested in psychoanalysis and the relationship between the unconscious and the Arts.
Arts Forum present Cinemas of the Mind in collaboration with Depot, Lewes. Monthly post-screening discussions of films which are of interest from a psychoanalytic standpoint, as well as from other perspectives. Events usually feature a speaker or panel discussion with Q&A.
If you are an individual artist of any discipline or an arts organisation and would be interested in collaborative future events or projects involving psychoanalytic ideas – please contact us.
In the early 18th century, England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne occupies the throne, and her close friend Lady Sarah governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne's ill health and mercurial temper. When a new servant, Abigail, arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing, and Abigail sees a chance to return to her aristocratic roots.
