Red Alert - Body Talk will explore the concept of body image and the effects that it has on the world. 2018 is an age of edited selfies on Instagram, photoshopped magazine covers and photoshoots, and YouTube personalities all of which funnel into creating perpetually more and more unrealistic body images.
Questions of dysmorphia, obsession, eat disorders, and social media will all be broached in this fascinating panel discussion.
