About Inside The Brain Of The Bard - CANCELLED

Our Temporary Gallery will be the hub of this event, where the team from Robert Burns Birthplace Museum have linked SAMH’s five ways to better mental health to our own site.

Visit the gallery, meet our team and see how our site can help you through connecting, being active, taking notice, learning and giving.

11am: Moira Hansen (Centre for Robert Burns Studies, University of Glasgow) will deliver a talk titled ‘The poignancy of your expression soothed my soul: Robert Burns and writing therapy.’
In his correspondence, Burns makes various references to periods of abnormal moods. Moira will discuss some of those periods – how the moods showed themselves, how they affected Burns’s life and how he used the writing of letters and poems to explore, understand and escape them.
Duration: 45 minutes, then 15 minutes for questions and discussions

2pm: Tracy Harvey (our resident Scots Scriever) will deliver a workshop.
Jine Tracy in a participative wirkshoap, leukin at historical an new-farrant wirk by Scots makars an scrievirs ettlin tae express thir mental health, feenishin wi the opportunity tae scrieve a poem or cutty tale o yir ain.
