reTHiNK Possible Worlds: The Quiz, The Screening & The Final Show

The Literatti are the proud recipients of a reTHiNK Grant to use creativity to help reduce the stigma and discrimination associated with mental ‘illness’ in Auckland. 

Members of the public were invited to create their own video responses to the theme “We are all human beings navigating the maze of life.” The best submissions will be screened at Corban Estate Art Centre on September 17th at 4 pm and will open the reTHiNK Possible Worlds shows at Galatos in Mental Health Awareness Week. 

For the final show, dance, poetry, film and music are interwoven to tell the story of eight characters as they navigate their way out of madness and rethink their possible worlds.
