UNBROKEN 2017 - The Programme!

World Mental Health Day has just ended and the second UNBROKEN mixed arts mental health awareness festival, produced by Shadow Road, draws ever closer!

As I'm sure you can imagine, it's pretty hectic right now!  Despite the stress, however, I'm really excited that we've managed to expand from one day at one venue in 2016, to three days and two venues this year.  We have also, with the new Short Film Prize, been able to encourage exploration of the issues through yet another art form.

I would love it if you would consider joining us for any/all of the festival at the end of this month.  We have put together a fantastic programme which offers something for everyone of all ages - from theatre, film and literature, to art, music, dance, discussions and even a taste of some therapy!

The new writing, original choreography, art exhibition, live music and panel discussions that proved such a hit in 2016, have this year been joined by a practical Art Therapy taster workshop; a literary event with Charlie Sheppard, Publishing Director at Andersen Press; Under My Skin, a powerful play about adolescent mental health by award-winning playwright Ali Taylor; a small festival bookstall and, of course, the inaugural UNBROKEN Short Film Prize at The Frontline Club!

A more detailed version of the programme can be found on the festival website – – but in the meantime, I have copied a simpler version below for you to look at. (The links won’t work, I’m afraid, as it’s a screenshot of our Facebook announcement!)  If you aren’t able to join us yourself, we’d all be really grateful if you could please help us by spreading the word to others.

Thank you very much and see you at the festival! :-)
