I’m Daniel Regan. I use this space online as a reflective practice journal to share insights into the work I’m doing, both for myself and anyone that wants to read and contribute. You can see my work over on my main website.
I’m an artist specialising in complex and difficult emotional experiences, focusing on the transformational impact of arts on mental health, building on my own lived experience. My work focuses on themes of wellbeing and brokers dialogue around often taboo topics. I shoot commissions, consult on wellbeing projects (including clinical humanities modules with medical students) and run Free Space Project, an arts and wellbeing charity. I regularly exhibit, speak at events and facilitate socially engaged arts projects across fine art, educational and clinical institutions in the UK and worldwide.
I currently run the Arts & Health Hub, funded by Arts Council England, a place for artists to connect, learn & share resources about arts & health. I sit on the board of trustees for the charity London Arts in Health Forum. I interview artists over at Fragmentary.org, a website devoted to the exploration of mental health within photography.
