We would love to produce our theatre piece and tour it around Manchester and East Lancashire. This would make an opportunity for our actors to improve their well being through addressing life controlling issues and through the therapeutic value of performing arts. “The power of participating in the arts in changing people’s lives has to do with the fact that it is so often an experience of achieving psychological or spiritual integrity. There is a healing process that is inherent in artistic activity, and one of the reasons that the arts matter so very, very much is that artistic creativity is an experience of committing yourself to something non material. Self-expression commits the whole of your being, your personality and your faculties to an activity, and that I think is an inherently healthy and good thing."Lord Howarth CBE We also aim to raise awareness of domestic abuse and the effects it has on mental health.

What we'll deliver:

  • Rehearsal and performance space costs
  • Actors fees
  • Props and costumes

Why it's a great idea:

It will raise awareness in our communities and empower people who are struggling to make changes and improve all round well being, which will save the costs incurred through psychiatric hospitals and therapeutic services.

Steps to get it done:

  • Our first rehearsals and performance will be Oswaldtwistle Civic Arts Centre

I have experienced mental health issues due to abusive and neglectful relationships and feel passionately about raising awareness to help others who may be in denial and/or suffering alone in silence.
