MINDSCAPES from SICK! Festival anounces new activities
MINDSCAPES from SICK! Festival explores how the world around us - our homes, our streets, our cities - affects our mental health and the way we feel about our lives, in both positive and negative ways.
Throughout Spring 2021 you’ll find MINDCSPAES happening in public spaces, from open air parks to the Metrolink and online, so that anyone can take part. Plus, you’ll be able to explore further by going online where talks, discussions and film screenings will be looking deeper into MINDSCAPES and its themes. There’ll be public illustrations, poetry, a phone app to tell you more about where you live, and much more. And it’s all free.
MINDSCAPES, is the result of a two- year collaboration between arts organisations and artists in Manchester and The Netherlands who have been working together and with local communities. Created by SICK! Festival in Manchester, developed with The Embassy of The Netherlands and funded by DutchCulture, MINDSCAPES explores many themes that feel more important than ever in the light of how COVID has affected the way we live and this is reflected in both the work itself and how it will be presented, making it safe and accessible to all.
Because MINDSCAPES has been developed inclusively with local communities, much of it will continue beyond Spring, giving people the chance to engage with the project over the next two years. Find out more about the artists involved and what’s on SICK! Festival's website.
