SICK! PRODUCTIONS

SICK! works with artists and marginalised communities to explore mental, physical and social challenges through art.

We develop year-round projects in social prescribing, community engagement, public realm work and digital, as well as a biennial festival.

MENOPAUSE BUS IN OCTOBER

Two composers, Tosin Akindele from Manchester and Sibylle Aeberli from Switzerland, have composed brand new songs, based on the experiences of people personally affected by the menopause.

We want to sing and shout at the top of our voices about a topic that many keep under wraps!
