Please join us for an evening of consideration on


Beth Elliott, Director of the Bethlem Gallery and Maker Sue Burbidge talk about practice and process at the Bethlem Gallery. What takes place before, during and after the making of an artwork? How are artists enabled to do what they do? Does the work lie in the minds of the audience, who after encountering the artwork, carry into the world with them new ideas, questions, feelings or forms? Join us for an evening of discussion to reach beyond art as an object and identify what might be called the ‘by-products’ of the art process.

Beth Elliot is currently working as the director of the Bethlem Gallery. Since graduating from University of the Arts London, Camberwell in 2002 she has focused her work on facilitating arts in mental health through workshops, residencies and exhibitions, and has also played an active role in supporting arts charities within the sector and beyond.
