Welcome to the first volume of Music for the Mind, the fundraising event series that helps young musicians and creatives to reboot their careers and their optimism.
By purchasing tickets you support mental health charities. The ticket link is here. https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/stagewave/t-odrqqp
Music is who we are. Music is what we are living for. No wonder why this last one year was tough to deal with: while gigs and festivals were canceled, many musicians were fighting a war for their mental health. We created Music for the Mind events for those who feel like they could use some energy, knowledge and community support. Come and have a chill networking night with a cocktail, some good music and music industry talks that will help you reboot your career.
Gates open at 18:00.
18:30 – The night will start with inspiring live music from the soulful acoustic performer, Natalie Lindi.
19:00 – The first industry talk is from Hugo Kibasi, production manager of Printworks. He will talk about his journey building his own company in the live music festival scene.
19:30 – Speaker of Samaritans talks about the importance of mental health and ways to get help.
19:45 – Gabriella Kemeny PR Consultant specialised in artists. Her topic is how you can build your brand and create a sustainable business of your passion.
20:15 – Finally we will have blues-indie rock performer Eleni Drake with a bunch of positive and beautiful energies.
During the night there will be time for networking with your peers, freelancers, artists and musicians. Don’t miss out on the chance to talk to them, they may be your lucky stars!
YOU’RE MORE RELEVANT THAN YOU THINK. We find it very important to show that nobody is alone with their bad feelings and anxiety, with their fear of the future. We ask you to share your feelings on Instagram and Facebook about the world reopening, about the last one and a half year, with the hashtag of #musicforthemindfeelings . We will project these writings on a screen during the night (anonymously) so all participants can see that we all feel similar things right now.
