Event: On Anxiety with Sophie Mackintosh, Ka Bradley, and Sarvat Hasin
June 18 @ 19:00 - 21:00£5
Anxiety. Worry, fear, longing, impatience. One word can mean so many things, be it the medical term for a mental health condition or a colloquialism for various forms of stress. Anxiety has affected all of us in one way or another; that's why 3 of Cups chose it as the theme for their first book, which you now have an opportunity to buy and bring to life. ON ANXIETY is a collection of short fiction, essays, poetry and art around anxiety in all its various guises, featuring over twenty artists exploring them.
