Who is this for? This music and drama session is for anyone over the age of 18 who is living with mental health challenges. Whether you are coping with a mental illness yourself or whether you care for someone with a mental illness, all are welcome to attend.
This music and drama course provides an apportunity to discover the beauty of sounds and stories around and within us. We will create and share stories using movement, lyric writing and musical instruments to produce group narratives and soundscapes.
This is a safe space to bring to light your own personal creativity, as well as to be inspired by the creativity of others around you. By working as a group over the course, we will weave characters, landscapes and plotlines together whilst simultaneously creating musical atmospheres, themes and songs, resulting in something brand new, exciting and unique to us.
Together we will work towards a greater sense of wellbeing and create a supportive, creative and fun environment where we can feel safe to explore and challenge ourselves.
Everyone is welcome! We encourage people with all levels of experience to attend from no music/drama background at all to experienced musicians and actors.
If you already play an instrument feel free to bring it along. We will also be providing some instruments and we can support you to learn the basics during the sessions!
