The Beaney How to get here

A new exhibition coming to The Beaney exploring mental health and asylums throughout time.

  • A Place of Safety
    Home by Gemma Lacey
See previously unseen artefacts from the Canterbury Museums and Galleries collection, alongside artwork loaned from the University of Kent, National Museums and contemporary work from local community groups. Visitors will be taken through the different periods of mental health; how we understand it, how we treat it and how we consider “What makes a space feel safe?” 

Location: Second Floor, Special Exhibition Gallery, The Beaney
