The Mental Health Coalition of SA (MHCSA) and Draw your S(Words) have teamed up for the launch of a new-look mindshare. mindshare is the MHCSA’s online creative mental health community that celebrates mental health, its journey and recovery.
On June 26th, the Draw your S(Words) stage will provide a platform for those with lived experience of mental health challenges and illness—including families, carers and support workers—to share original poetry.
Open mic night for all!
This open mic event will include a special appearance from Alison Paradoxx, SA’s 2016 Poetry Slam winner. Alison represented our state at the National Poetry Slam at The Sydney Opera House and has since performed as a featured artist throughout South Australia’s literary, and spoken word communities. She has also been involved in a variety of collaborative projects including street poetry installations and youth mental health workshops. Alison’s work focuses on the paradoxes of human nature, acceptance of disability in self, and the societal desire to ‘fix’ the broken self.
Those wanting to participate in the open mic are advised to get in early and sign up at the door to secure their slot.
