R&D – Exploration sessions with mental health charity
Many Minds is a mental health and performance charity based in Bristol. We have some space at Bristol Old Vic in August from 6th-20th and are inviting artists who have an interest in working with under 18’s or under 25’s who have experience of mental ill health who want to explore ideas in an R&D session over an afternoon with our members (aged 16+).
This opportunity is unpaid (out of pocket expenses provided) but we are hoping to build relationships with creatives with a view of potentially collaborating in the future
We want to make a piece of work for a large scale venue that has music and movement as part of it.
Long term we are thinking about starting to develop the germs of ideas for a much larger project. (maybe) A DIY punk musical made by and featuring young people about mental health/ the issues that matter to them. We want to start exploring seeds of ideas and working relationships with people who inspire us.
So… if you wanted or were free to spend an afternoon with us, and this sounds of interest, please send a short paragraph with an idea / provocation you would like to explore to with the dates you are free between 6-20th Aug.
We hope that your provocation would be an idea that excites you in this field and area it could be a discussion, workshopping a dance or a song.
