Big Mind Theatre

Supported by Arts Council England, Theatre Deli, BAC Beatbox Academy and Real Talk

Sightlines is a two week festival, exploring the conversation surrounding the relationship between performance and wellbeing. The inaugural edition took place in July 2021, with varied events including performances, workshops, talks and panels focused on the subject of mental health and wellbeing in its many forms.

Together we will dig into the processes of creating performance, as well as how positive wellbeing can be promoted through different art forms and for performers, participants, producers and audiences. Space will be made for discussion around specific aspects of performance and intersections with personal identity, experiences and societal issues.
