On World Mental Health Day on 10 October 2020, Thrive Edinburgh, the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival and Health in Mind will be hosting an online festival focusing on how creativity can support our mental health and wellbeing.
In these times of uncertainty, confusion and chaos people have reached to the arts for support, solace, fun and understanding. To celebrate and provoke the resilience and imagination of the human spirit there will be a series of online events, discussions and workshops.
At 6.00 pm GMT our Thrive city sisters – New York City and London will join together in the International Chatroom. Frank Ross, Lord Provost of Edinburgh, Sidaq Khan, the Mayor of London, and Chirlane McCray, New York City’s First Lady will share their thoughts and experiences on how they have looked after their own and their city’s mental health during these troubled times.
In light of current guidelines and social distancing measures this festival will be hosted online and will include both pre-recorded and live content.
A full schedule of events published by the end of September.
