Let's Talk 2021

Creating Conversation

Our Let's Talk monologue series was produced for Mental Health Awareness Week in May 2021. We wanted to create and facilitate conversations surrounding mental health. It's important to create spaces where artists and audiences can explore mental health.

Artists

With the project, we aimed to bring artists based all across Scotland together to create seven powerful stories. The project created spaces for artists to explore mental health through writing and performance. The series contains seven original and new monologues.
