An Unmissable Mental-Health Awareness Week Event

reTHiNK Possible Worlds

We are all human beings navigating the maze of life.

Emerging and established talents from five different creative fields come together in a one hour collaborative display that is sure to leave even the most cynical amongst us uplifted.

A cross-genre collaboration of ambitious proportions – Dance, live music, performance poetry, visual art and film are interwoven to tell the powerful story of multiple characters as they navigate their way out of mental unwellness and rethink their possible worlds.
