Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival Singing Workshop 22nd May

Come and join a singing workshop on Tuesday 22nd May 3.30pm-4.30pm at Tynecastle High School, in connection with the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival. No singing or musical experience needed, everybody welcome!

The Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival (SMHAF, 7-27 May 2018) is an annual event to raise awareness of mental health issues (and challenge preconceptions about mental health) through music, film, visual arts, dance, theatre and literature. The theme of this year’s festival is ‘Beginnings’, and it is happening during Scotland’s 2018 ‘Year Of Young People’. Our singing workshop is free and open to everybody in the Tynecastle High School community: students, parents and carers, school staff, and those in our cluster primary schools (Dalry, Balgreen, Stenhouse and Craiglockhart).

Singing will be led by Caro Overy, who joined us in February to lead a workshop during Children’s Mental Health Week. Caro is a choir leader, singer, and songwriter who enjoys sharing songs old and new from around the world to help people connect and have fun through singing.

For more information about this event, please contact Sarah Haywood (Place2Be School Project Manager), but please do just come along on the day. For more information about SMHAF and how you can get involved, visithttps://www.mhfestival.com/
