Mixed arts mental health awareness festival and Short Film Prize UNBROKEN  was founded by small theatre company Shadow Road Productions  in 2016 with the main aim of increasing awareness of the issues, reducing the stigma surrounding them by opening up the conversation, and confounding expectations as to what a production about 'mental health' might involve! 

Given the company's enduring concern with the vital issue of mental health, both military (where we started) and civilian, we always hoped that UNBROKEN would outlive its debut year and that has, happily, proved to be the case! In 2017 we were delighted to launch the UNBROKEN Short Film Prize - now an integral part of the festival - which allowed us to explore the issues surrounding mental health through yet another art form!

Shadow Road's work always involves a charitable aspect of some kind - raising awareness, raising funds, or taking live entertainment out to people who, due to illness or infirmity, might not otherwise have the opportunity to enjoy it. It has been very important to us that, as part of the festival, we are able to provide events & therapeutic workshops to the public at prices low enough to ensure no one is barred by cost from attending & benefiting, due to the income from ticket sales and donations from supporters. Every little bit really does help and is hugely appreciated. Thank you.
