Mind Games – Scottish Mental Health Film Festival ‘Walkthrough’

If you’re in Glasgow, or unafraid of the public transport system within central Scotland, you can make your way to Cineworld 7 this evening, for a videogames session taking place as part of the 2012 Scottish Mental Health Arts & Film Festival.

Walkthrough is an exploration of the positive effects of videogames and games culture.  There are three speakers taking part…

Now in its sixth year, the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival is one of Scotland’s most diverse cultural events, covering everything from music, film and visual art to theatre, dance, literature and now videogames.

The festival takes place in venues throughout Scotland across the whole of October and aims to support the arts and challenge pereconceived ideas about mental health.

By engaging artists, connecting with communities and forming collaborations, the festival celebrates the artistic achievements of people with experience of mental health issues, explores the relationship between creativity and the mind, and promotes positive mental health and well-being.

The Walkthrough event is FREE and tickets are still available.  It kicks off at 18:30 and finishes at 20:00.  The participants have all, without exception promised it will be a ‘cavalcade of awesome’, ‘a complex reappraisal of the the role of videogames within the wider context of mental wellbeing and where entertainment meets education’ and ‘our shock and awe’.

We’ll see you there.
