Mind Your Music and our larger parent group Stepping Out Theatre run music workshops for people struggling with Mental Health difficulties in Bristol. We run over 120 workshops a year. Since the year 2000 we have put over 300 people with serious mental illness on stage at venues in Bristol including The Colston Hall, The Tobacco Factory Theatre, The QEH theatre, The Southbank club and Mr. Wolfs. Due to the complex needs of the people we work with and the sheer amount of musical equipment that needs to be transported, it requires two people to run our workshops. We already have funding in place for our workshop leader but need to fund our co-facilitator to enable the workshops to take place. £9,000 would enable our co-facilitator to: facilitate 120 workshops, plan and participate in 4 concerts, maintain our website, design posters for all our events and deal with all our phone and email enquiries.
The impact of our work on many of the people we work with is life changing:
'The best thing in my life apart from my cat'
'Mind your music helps me be me'
'As soon as I get there I feel lifted up'
'The difference between life and death to me'
Please help us continue to use music to change lives.
Note: Our workshops are a collaboration between Mind Your Music and Stepping Out Theatre. All donations will be administered by Stepping Out Theatre registered Charity Number: 1179310. IF ANY OF OUR DONORS WOULD LIKE TO COME TO A WORKSHOP OR EVENT AND SEE THE DIFFERENCE THEIR MONEY IS MAKING THEY WOULD BE MORE THAN WELCOME!!WWW.MINDYOURMUSIC.ORG
