let's talk

Let's Talk was a project that explored the human experience through the lens of mental health.

 

During the lockdown, we created a digital monologue series that showcases the work of talented writers and performers. Our productions aim to tackle isolation and loneliness while promoting mindfulness and well-being. We believe in telling stories that resonate with people and inspire.
