Join misery at the iconic Rio cinema in East London for their first misery movies event!

They will be showing a lovingly curated series of short films on the themes of mental health, nature and QTIBPOC futures, as well as premiering some very special and informative short films made during their year-long misery medicine programme, which saw them exploring and decolonising a different public green space in London each month, guided by QTIBPOC community herbalists.

Tickets are on sale via the Rio Cinema.

Part of What Shall We Build Here, Artsadmin’s festival of art, climate and community from 28 June – 2 July 2023.

misery is a mental health community and sober rave based in london and led by and for queer, trans, intersex, black people and people of colour (qtibpoc) with lived experience of madness, mental health challenges, time in hospital, addiction, public service use, disability, trauma, medication and neurodivergence. we co-create free, playful, accessible sober spaces, services, practices, parties and resources to cultivate communities of care that can support and sustain the collective healing and resilience of qtibpoc world over. misery is a reminder that you’re not too sensitive, it’s mad out here.
