SICK Festival presents Birds of a Feather, Manchester


Price: Free


A flock of birds are flying, silhouetted against a blue sky with white clouds.

Birds of a Feather is a photographic exhibition showcasing work developed by participants of our social prescribing project SMASH: EXPLORE.

Over the course of July and August our EXPLORE group alongside artist Chris Charles went on a guided programme of creative walks using photography and creative writing, encouraging participants to look differently at their environment.

They explored the ways in which their environment affects their mental health, exercising whilst connecting with people from their neighbourhood with similar experiences.

SMASH is SICK! Festival’s Mental Health Arts Programme: a creative social prescribing project offering a range of creative, innovative experiences designed to: Help improve how participants feel; increase their understanding of mental health and illness and provide new creative tools for exploring and expressing mental health experiences.
