‘Talking Emotions’ is the culmination of ‘Mind Up’, a Drama, Storytelling and Video project for the community.
Since January 2011, Community Vibe have been working with adults with experience of mental health and members of the local community on this mixed-media project which looks at the benefits of creativity for improving health and wellbeing.
Throughout the project, participants have had the opportunity to work with artists who specialise in Drama, Creative Writing and Digital/Visual Media. As with all of our community arts projects, we regard everyone who participates as ‘artists’.
Their aim is to provide a safe and supportive environment where people can explore their creative potential, and their experienced staff assist in realising that potential, ensuring that the healthy and positive aspects of each person is the focus and inspiration in the creative process.
The result of this work, created by the group, will be performed at the Library Theatre, Birmingham. Friday May 6th 2011 2.00pm
