We all experience anxiety to some extent during our lives.

A new exhibition and events season at Science Gallery London combines art, design, psychology and neuroscience to highlight positive and creative responses when dealing with anxiety.

ON EDGE: Living in an Age of Anxiety reflects on individual experiences, the environmental and societal factors that can cause worry or stress and explores our evolutionary impulse to be on alert.

Drawing on research from the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) at King’s College London, the season reflects the perspectives of a range of artists, scientists, young people and those with lived experience of anxiety.

The free exhibition includes many new commissions developed by artists working in collaboration with researchers from King’s.
