See Listen Talk – a phenomenological study of slow looking for young psychiatric users
In Copenhagen, Denmark, the Frederiksberg Museums in 2023 have led the “See Listen Talk” project, focusing on young psychiatric users. The intention has been a phenomenological study of how the museums’ distinctive spaces and artworks can contribute to the personal recovery process. The study reveals intriguing aspects, indicating that the slow looking methods participants learn and practice in the secure museum environment can be applied to their life beyond the museum walls. Participants report experiencing a valuable aid that mitigates stress and intrusive thoughts while assisting in structuring their daily, work, or study life.
