SICK! Festival faces up to the complexities of mental and physical health.
We present an outstanding international arts programme, weaving in perspectives from researchers, clinical practitioners, public health professionals, charities and those with lived experience of the issues we address. Themes are explored through many art forms – dance, theatre, film, spoken word – and through discussion and debate. We present and commission powerful, innovative and engaging work by artists from across Manchester, the UK and the world.
2021 sees the launch of MINDSCAPES, a groundbreaking new public-facing arts project, which sees artists from The Netherlands and Manchester come together both online and in local communities to create challenging artistic responses to issues around mental health in our cities.
