An Evening Celebrating Our Department’s Creativity, Scholarship & Artistry
Performing Psychiatry celebrates the scholarship and artistic talent manifest (and hidden) in our students, residents, fellows and colleagues from all mental health disciplines within the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto. This event will showcase and honour our creative expression in an evening of multi-media exhibitions and performance. Last year’s event was a wonderful success and we look forward to another fun and inspiring evening! An addition to this year’s program will be a book fair featuring our faculty’s publications within the last 3 years.
We encourage and invite everyone in the Department of Psychiatry who is involved in the arts or who actively creates art to share this work with our Department!
Short performance pieces including music, theatre, dance, storytelling or readings along with visual media submissions are invited.
For the book fair, we invite faculty who have published books in the past 3 years to showcase their work.
