Earlier this year we partnered with Malit in the Community, an organisation who deliver drama to support mental health.
Recent graduates from Liverpool John Moore’s University, Anna Malit and Megan Peet have set up a CIC to use their skills for the good of others.
Care Merseyside engaged participants for the drama class via our referral platform Elemental Software. A few of the group were also members of our Creative Writing intervention and some of them had been recently bereaved.
Malit presented the group with an opportunity to participate in a joint venture with their partners Ugly Bucket Theatre (who have recently been commissioned to write and perform a play on grief).
The project ‘Good Grief’ will include some of our beneficiaries’ writing on the topic which has been created with great expression and intimacy.
Art has become Art and all parties have worked together to contribute to the upcoming production which will be performed at Unity Theatre on 28th November 2019.
The BBC have been following Ugly Bucket’s founder – Grace Gallagher in order to make a short film covering the project and on Friday 4th October all those involved were filmed at Tower Hill Community Centre.
Dr Maassarani stopped by to have a chat with everyone and was delighted in seeing first-hand the positive impact Social Prescribing has had on many of his patients.
His key mantra was ‘ there is no one pill that sorts out our problems, learning, creating, reflecting and having fun are all tools we should implement in order to live fulfilled and happy lives’.
