In a time of anxiety fuelled by Brexit and other divisive political issues, the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival (SMHAF) today announces a nationwide programme exploring all the ways in which we are ‘Connected’.
SMHAF 2019 includes events with asylum seekers, travellers, the LGBT community, and families affected by suicide and other traumatic events, in a wide-ranging programme that focuses on the importance of staying connected to each other, and the impact of isolation on our mental health.
SMHAF is one of Scotland’s biggest, most diverse festivals. Its unique approach – programmed from the ground up by a team of regional co-ordinators all across the country, in combination with a film and theatre programme curated by the Mental Health Foundation – ensures it connects with audiences that other arts festivals often struggle to reach.
