Body Kind

Expressive Madness

In 2017, the world’s first ever festival of body acceptance took place in Totnes, Devon. Bodykind explored ways of feeling more comfortable in the skin we’re in with speakers, workshops, art, photography, theatre, dance, film and music. On the final day of the festival, Arts Lab hosted a workshop in the heart of the town. Open to all, we provided the opportunity for visitors to express through paint how they felt about their bodies after the experiences of the weekend.

‘BodyKind is about honouring life in its various forms, rather than comparing oneself or anyone else to an external concept of beauty.’
