An evening of spoken word, music and provocations, in association with the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival. Flint & Pitch bring together five diverse acts to creatively respond to the theme ‘Reclaim This Script.’
Can ‘reclaiming’ slurs bring empowerment? How best can we change dominant narratives about the causes of ill mental health? How can we have better conversations about this, in life and through creative works? Come hear these broad themes explored in a night of poetry, song and more. Expect challenging topics to be addressed head-on by author and writer Denise Mina, songwriter Kathryn Joseph, writer and publisher Laura Waddell, poet Stephen Watt, songmaker Heir of the Cursed and Colin McGuire’s “The Wake Up Call” . Hosted by Jenny Lindsay.
