James Leadbitter and Hannah Hull host a Madlove gathering and social event. Join them for an evening of talks, films and getting to know each other. Details of the evenings programme below.
MADLOVE (Talk, Q&A and Suggestion Box)
‘the vacuum cleaner’ and Hannah Hull
A collaborative project to build the most crazy, bonkers, mental asylum we dare dream of… A safe space to ‘go mad’ that will counter the popular myth that mental illness is dangerous and scary.
APPLES IS APPLES (Film: 69 mins)
NAGAS and Andrew Wilson
An engaging portrait of NAGAS, a creative service for adults who experience, or are at risk of experiencing, diagnosed mental health problems and other forms of social exclusion.
ALIAS (Film: 4 minutes)
A short film made in response to 'Mental', a site-specific autobiographical performance in a bed, by 'the vacuum cleaner', an artist-activist with experience of severe and debilitating mental illness.
37 PIECES OF FLAIR (Talk and Q&A)
This new project will intentionally avoid the ‘knife wielding madmen’ or ‘isolated social outcast’ – so often aligned with the coverage of mental health in mass media. It will challenge the culturally perceived notions of mental health and how it affects all of our lives.
