This year is the 10th anniversary of the Good Mental Health Cooperative! So we couldn’t miss the opportunity to celebrate.
As the Good Mental Health Coop, we’ve organised three previous Hampshire Festivals of the Mind – in 2014, 2016 and 2018. It’s been five tumultuous years since our last Festival, and this one will be focused on Portsmouth, showcasing the work that goes on in local communities to build resilience, tackle social isolation and contribute to reducing health inequalities.
Our keynote event is on 12 October at Oasis – the Venue in Arundel Street, Portsmouth. There’ll be free workshops, a creative doodle trail with Seekers, a Books Alive! stall, trips around town with Cycling Without Age, and stalls from many of the community based groups in the city. We welcome the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress to open the event, and also our guest speaker Jill Manthorpe CBE from Kings College London. There will be refreshments and lunch provided.
