Mental Health and Performance Charity. Feeling alive together.

We are Many Minds, a Bristol based mental health charity that facilitate creative spaces and make performance. We put people who identify with experiences of mental ill-health in the driver’s seat as a way to break down stigma and trigger generosity and equality. Many Minds was founded by Olivia Ware (Director) and Viki Browne (Artistic Director) in 2017.

We work with individuals to engage with their creativity,  improve confidence, self-esteem and build social skills and networks. We run weekly workshops in theatre making skills to devise and create high quality contemporary performance. Click on our productions tab in the menu bar to learn more about these.

 Watch our video or visit our who we are page to  see what our members have gained from being involved.

Come and join our weekly workshops for people aged 16-106 where we will play games and make performance in a safe, fun and inclusive environment.

The workshops will be facilitated by Viki Browne & Olivia Ware and we will be working towards an outdoor participatory walking performance in May/ June 2019. Expect to dance, laugh and see something different in our urban playground as we use and misuse the spaces we take for granted everyday and follow shared paths that connect us to one another.

We are interested in representing a diverse range of stories and experiences of Bristol and particularly want to work with you if you identify as BME/ BAME or as a refugee/ asylum seeker. As ever we are open to EVERYONE no matter how you identify.

WHEN: Tuesday evenings 6-8.30PM starting 12th February.
WHERE: People’s Republic of Stokes Croft, 14 Hillgrove St, Bristol BS2 8JT
