Young men talk about life in Leicester in new performance showcase

Seven young men from Leicester are being given the opportunity to voice their experiences of life in a brand new show featuring music, poetry and film. They are being supported by nationally acclaimed, professional artists as part of a groundbreaking project to help mental health service users.

Lydia Towsey, Executive Producer, BrightSparks Arts in Mental Health Group:

“Young men experiencing mental health issues, particularly those of black or minority ethnic origin, face a wide range of health and social inequalities. ‘Showcase Live’ will help to raise the profile of this under represented group by presenting their stories in an exciting and contemporary way.”
