Kew Palace Project

I’ve been commissioned by the team at Kew Palace to deliver a project working with men living with lived experience of mental health difficulties, focusing on the mental health of King George III.

Throughout the summer I’ll be facilitating a number of sessions at Kew Palace, looking at the life of King George III and his apparent mental health difficulties. With the group we’ll be taking a contemporary look at what these issues may have been, as well as looking at the King’s contributions to the arts, science and more. The outcomes from these groups will feed into an exhibition next year at Kew Palace focusing on King George. Contemporary interpretations of historical objects will be displayed beside alongside the historical information, enabling the men with lived experience to contribute their own interpretations of the King’s life.
