What values, symbols, landscapes and images were used in order to create a new Italian national identity leading up to the country’s unification in 1861? How have artistic and cultural productions contributed to shifting the meanings of Italy (or Italies) and Italian identity? By exploring some examples of figurative art in the 19th century, Fausto explores the proposal that ideas and emotions of Italian identities are historically contingent, and that the Italian case undermines the notion of national identity and ideals.

Did you know that just 20 minutes of art per day can improve wellbeing as effectively as getting enough exercise and sleep? Or that making art for as little as 45 minutes can reduce the stress hormone cortisol? When Ann-Marie started Beautiful Stitches in 2012, she thought she was simply teaching embroidery. Over time, she recognized that her work was helping people build confidence, manage mental health problems, alleviate pain, and grow community. It felt like there was something important and meaningful at the heart of her work, but she didn't have any "proof". Come along to this talk and be fascinated by new research in the field of neuroaesthetics, which shows categorically that participating in art and craft activities is not just good for you—it's integral to being human.

This is an invitation to explore a topic that, arguably, could be the most important of our lives. Happiness is an elusive concept. Is it a fleeting feeling or emotion, as a result of equally brief experiences? Is it an underlying sense of peace and contentment, capable of surviving difficult days? Can we choose to be happy or is it a skill randomly assigned by fate or the gods? Are some people more psychologically equipped to be happy than others? Bring your ideas and questions!

In the ancient practice of sound healing, the sound frequencies slow down brain waves to a deeply restorative state, and this activates the body's system of self-healing. Harmonious tones wash over you in this deeply rejuvenating and soothing experience. Come and enter a meditative sound bath of crystal singing bowls and gongs, with operatically trained sound healer Sian Brown. Enjoy from a chair or on a yoga mat. Come as you are, bring a blanket, a yoga mat and a bottle of water. Enrol in one or both (fee is per session)
