Mental health is being given a platform at spoken word and music show, It’s in Your Head, at Gerry’s Studio.
Musicians and poets will share their mental health experiences in acoustic sets and monologues, while healthcare professionals will be on hand to deliver advice at the Gerry Raffles Square, Stratford venue.
Urban street poet and winner of Amnesty Internaional’s youth poetry award, Yusif Tarajia, will perform along with Dionne Mitchell, former support artist for Amy Winehouse.
Producer director Wayne Campbell said: “If we are able to come together as a community to encourage one another and share some of our experiences through art and creative expression, we are better placed to create an awareness platform where people can talk and find the support they need.”
It’s in Your Head plays on March 9 at 7pm. Tickets costs £10 and proceeds go to INUF, a Stratford based mental health charity. Call 020 8534 0310 or visit stratfordeast.com to book.
