Deep Down are turning over a New Leaf in 2019. This will take the form of a creative mini-fest in May 2019 in partnership with The Ivy Bar and some local grassroots mental health groups. The Ivy is a Safe House, that means somewhere you can go if you are in mental distress and talk about it – judgement free. Staff in The Ivy are trained in Safe Talk and know how to sensitively seek help for people when they need it. Festival Director Paula Matthews has been amazed and encouraged by the work of The Ivy and we are deeply grateful to Marty from The Ivy for helping us celebrate creativity since we all want to boost wellbeing and dispel stigma.
We are aiming for a fun, accessible and inclusive range of events in May 2019. If you are interested to hear more or to get involved, email Paula Matthews at email@example.com.
