A two year collaboration with Manchester Mind contributing to continued awareness of male mental health, premiered on World Mental Health Day at HOME – Manchester’s centre for international contemporary art, theatre, and film. The work features four film commissions, a 12 track album of songs, spoken word and remixes, along with a limited edition of bespoke handmade sculptures – the icon for the work.
The topic is explored by a series of internationally acclaimed mixed discipline artists, that intends to challenge and inspire whilst celebrating the makers involved.
FOUR SONGS were used as the starting point from which to encourage more open discussion, using creativity to embrace male mental health in ‘a different light’.
