Unconscious Reflection with Alice Davies

🗓️ Wednesday 8 May, 5.45PM – 8.00PM (GMT)

📍 Turner Contemporary, Rendezvous, Margate CT9 1HG

Join Arts Psychotherapist and Educator Alice Davies and OSE Associate Kenny Mala Ngombe for an experiential art-making workshop. This will be a space for collective and intuitive art-making, where the group dynamic may be considered a microcosm of society at large, and where significant themes that arise through acts of art making and discussion in the group can be explored as meaningful reflections of such.

Alice Davies is a qualified Art Psychotherapist and an Artist Educator. She has facilitated art psychotherapy with children and adults in the Grenfell Tower community, with survivors of domestic violence, and also with women and babies, and in inpatient mental health settings within the NHS. Alice now has a private Art Psychotherapy practise in Margate, (held in the OSE building) and works with local community youth organisations in Thanet. Alice facilitates art workshops and play spaces for children and families in community settings in London and Margate, in particular for neurodivergent and disabled children and families. Alice has worked as an artist educator with TATE, the V&A, and other galleries and museums for the last decade.

OSE Public Programme 2023-24

This year’s Associate-led Public Programme, Where Echo Lies, takes us to the edges of our experience, where it is dark, and all is not necessarily clear. Plunging into new depths, the programme thinks through deep time and the unconscious mind. What forms of solace might be found in the night that cannot emerge in the light of day? What might we hear when surrounded by this darkness? Through myth making, spectatorship, performance, and painting, you are invited to look inward and ask how can our experience help us understand what lies beneath the knowable?

We’re excited to announce our continued partnership with Turner Contemporary, who are generously hosting part of the public programme. Turner Contemporary is one of the UK’s leading art galleries. Founded to celebrate JMW Turner’s connection to Margate in 2001, the David Chipperfield designed gallery opened in 2011.
