Berwins Solicitors and Harrogate International Festivals bring you TED-style talks designed to change your life for the better. Presenting big ideas, and answering key questions in life, Salon was voted as number six in the ‘Top 100 Things to do in the World’ by GQ magazine.This month, we will be looking at what makes us human – from the science and psychology of ‘being animal’ and the process of recovery from mental illness to unlearning what we know about women in ancient history and myth.Natalie Haynes challenges our perceptions of ancient mythological women who have been painted as monstrous, vengeful, or just plain evil, providing nuanced retellings that place the women of Greek mythology on equal footing with the ‘menfolk’.Melanie Challenger asks how well we really know ourselves, offering a radical take on what it means to be human and arguing that at the heart of our psychology is a profound struggle with being animal.Horatio Clare shares a first-hand account of his struggles with mental illness, exploring how the mind loses touch with reality, how we fall apart, and how we can be healed - or not - by treatment.As ever, our trio of speakers is expertly bound together and hosted by the fabulous Helen Bagnall.Student/JSA tickets available at £11.20. A £1.75 booking fee applies to all ticket purchases.
