Hearing Voices: Inspiration or Insanity?

Sun 28 May

“Who said that?” is one answer to the psychiatrist’s favourite question, do you hear voices? Joan of Arc not only heard them but acted on them. Apparently a large proportion of people do hear internal voices with no psychiatric problems whatsoever. Whether we view them as our own inner voice, or outside agencies, this is a forum for interested parties to debate the politics of faith and voice hearing.

The session will begin with the screening of the short film Hearing Voices by local film-maker Dominic Pillai. The film has an immersive soundscape that aims to create a hearing voices experience. The work was commissioned by Folkestone and District Mind in partnership with ARRCC Folkestone to reduce stigma and create a better understanding of this condition.
