Guildhall School hosts Lost in Thought-inspired symposium

Running alongside the world premiere of Lost in Thought this September, the Guildhall School of Music & Drama is hosting a symposium bringing together artists, researchers and those with an interest in mindfulness and its relationship to the arts and to explore its practice and potential.
