The Renfrewshire Festival Team is proud to present this 4th programme as part of the national Scottish Mental Health Arts & Film Festival.
Our programme features 47 events, including the genres of: art, comedy, drama, dance, film, music and words, in venues from theatres to pubs, and involves many participating partners including community arts groups, service user groups, Renfrewshire Council and Renfrewshire CHP.
‘Beating Stigma’ is our big public launch in County Square on 1 October 11am—3pm. It promises to be an interactive & entertaining event; showcasing the talents of local musicians,
singers and dancers hosted by Gina McKie of Radio Clyde.
Programme highlights include: a choice of 4 pieces of theatre, a training event ‘ The Connected Baby’ with Dr Sussanne Zydeck, an opportunity to hear about the ‘Singing for the Brain’ project or join us at the Family Festival Ceilidh at Johnstone Town Hall with the band ‘Celine & Friends’.
Check out what’s on offer throughout October and get some dates in your diary.
Creativity and the arts are good for our health and are excellent mediums to raise awareness of good mental health and, above all, beat stigma.
We would like to extend our thanks to our funding partners; Renfrewshire Council, Renfrewshire CHP, Adult Mental Health Services and Glasgow Airport.
