Merel Smitt chats about Universal Credit, mind-bending bureaucracy and inhuman offices with the people who helped her create While Waiting, Wait Here for MINDSCAPES.
Whilst creating their new projects, our MINDSCAPES commissioned artists worked with individuals and communities from across Manchester who have deep personal or professional knowledge of the relationship between mental health and the places they live.
Merel worked with staff and service users at Yes Manchester, an organisation based in North Manchester that helps local people to find jobs and access training.
Merel talks with with Dr Sarah Marie Hall (University of Manchester) and Stephen O’hagan (Yes Manchester)
