Recorded: Friday, October 21, 7 – 8:30 pm in the Weston Family Learning Centre
Dr. Allan Peterkin will engage Dr. Susan Abbey and artist Deirdre Logue in a conversation around the issues of mindfulness in the arts and medicine. A selection of Deirdre Logue's work will be screened.
Dr. Susan Abbey specializes in psychiatry concentrated on the interface of mind and body – with a particular focus on depression, quality of life and stress management with the medically ill and transplant patients and families. Deirdre Logue’s film, video and installation work focuses on self-presentational discourse, the body as material, confessional autobiography and the passage of ‘real’ time.
Presented in partnership with the Wilson Center, the Arts, Health and Humanities Program and the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto.
