Event: Manchester Mad Pride All-Dayer - MHRN fundraiser at Niamos
This Mad Pride gathering is a celebration of the compulsive creativity emerging from mental health survivors and our comrades.
We seek to promote solidarity, establish support networks and raise awareness of the challenges survivors encounter in living with mental distress in our community and beyond.
Hulme’s Mad Pride all-dayer is bringing together the valued talents of musicians of multiple genres, visual artists, participatory theatre, poetry, book readings, protest banners, information exchanges, comedy performers and volunteers to raise funds for Mental Health Resistance Network and Niamos Radical Arts & Culture Centre.
Carol Batton - Manchester's poet laureate of the survivors movement
Stuart Calton - book readings
