Part of the Fringe Central Events Programme for Fringe participants. Mental health is an increasingly prominent theme of Fringe shows. Here the Mental Health Foundation, which supports artistic work exploring mental health through its annual Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival (SMHAF) and other programmes, hosts a workshop to examine the challenges this kind of work presents for performers and audiences. With Andrew Eaton-Lewis, arts lead for the Mental Health Foundation, and Emma Jayne Park, associate artist for SMHAF. Join us after for an informal meetup in Fringe Central.
