An exhibition of art produced by vulnerable young people has gone on display at a museum dedicated to the father of psychoanalysis.
Hide and Seek, at the Freud Museum in Maresfield Gardens, Hampstead, showcases work by children from the charity Kids Company which supports some of the most deprived young people in London.
Camila Batmanghelidjh CBE, Kids Company’s founder and chief executive, and Professor Peter Fonagy OBE, chief executive of the Anna Freud Centre, a charity that researches emotional childhood distress, gave talks at the exhibition’s launch last week.
They were pictured in the Freud Museum’s garden on an artistically decorated bench created by some of Kids Company’s members as part of the project.
Ms Batmanghelidjh said the exhibition allows others to “experience the children’s take on the emotional effects of trauma and neglect on the unconscious mind”.
