Interface: What's Up with Everyone? Storytelling and mental health

Virtual event


What’s Up With Everyone is a research project that explores how animated storytelling might increase mental health literacy amongst young people.

This session will introduce the project, including a screening of bespoke animations made by the world famous, four times Academy Award® winning animation studio Aardman (creators of Wallace & Gromit, Shaun the Sheep, Creature Comforts, Chicken Run) and will be followed by a Q&A with the lead researchers on the project.

This project has been funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and involves the Institute for Mental Health at the University of Nottingham, LSE, Aardman and the Storytelling Academy at Loughborough.


This event is part of Interface: a week of discussions and events that showcase interdisciplinary practice. Individual events are listed on the LU Arts website.
