Get Over It!

Get Over It! was a forum theatre workshop and performance that toured to ten venues across Somerset in November 2013. It explored the everyday stigma, prejudice and ignorance surrounding mental health that people face in the workplace and with their families.

What Change? was a community arts project that took place during summer 2014, encouraging people in Burnham & Highbridge to think about what small, but significant, change they could create to make their towns the best place to be.

In Autumn 2014, in partnership with Yarlington Housing, we ran a new series of The Thing Is... workshops for people in South Somerset to develop their confidence and skills and find new ways to communicate in a fun and safe environment.
