Let’s Talk About It!
SICK! Festival has grown and evolved since 2013, emerging from reflections on our own lives and the lives of people around us to embrace issues of wider significance for communities and deep importance for individuals. We are constantly guided by those communities and individuals, who ground our work in real-life experience, huge knowledge and immense understanding of the sensitivities of emotive issues. All too often these subjects are kept away from public view and debate. We exist to change that.

We are looking for exciting and diverse artists to deliver creative workshops and/or facilitated conversations as part of our SMASH SICK! Mental Health Arts Programme.
SMASH is a creative social prescribing project that offers participants a range of creative, innovative experiences residents of North Manchester who have been referred to us through mental health services in the community.
We are looking for artists to deliver two elements:
Participatory Workshops: Artist led workshops developing creativity as a way of exploring their own experiences. The sessions will be carefully pitched to enable participants to participate in ways that they are comfortable with. These sessions are aimed to be up to 2-3 hours long for a group of up to 10 participants.
Creative Conversations: Facilitated conversations with artists about their work, the challenges they have faced and their approach to managing their own mental health and wellbeing. We envisage these to be intimate events for a group of up to 10 participants.
Artists can lead either a Participatory Workshop(s) or be the subject of the Creative Conversation series, or both.
Deadline for submissions is 12th November 2021. Find out more about the process and how to apply: https://sickfestival.com/news/artists-smash/
