Event description

Description

Join us on May 15th for a #NottsSoup Mental Health special with Hard Heads and Hang-Ups.

Donate at least £5 for a bowl of tasty soup and listen to five pitches for ideas that use arts activities to enhance mental health.

An expert panel and the audience get to ask the pitchers a few questions and then we all vote for the one we think should get the sum of all our fivers!

More details

If you've not been to a Nottingham Soup before, the idea is folks get together, each donating a minimum of £5 for tasty homemade soup, and listen to pitches for postive action and community projects.The audience vote for their favourite and the winner takes all of the donations! The soup is donated and lovingly made by staff at THiNK

But this one is a #NottsSoup with a difference. Nottingham artist, Kelly Ann Holmes kickstarted a fund, Hard Heads and Hang Ups in conjunction with THiNK, specifically for Arts and Mental Health intiatives. Donations are/have been raised on the night have been added to by a busk off event on 5th & 6th May & generous donation from staff at the Lubrizol Corporation & others.

In addition to the audience, we have a knowledgeable panel to ask the pitchers about their ideas and projects and offer suggestions and contacts. The panel includes Kelly Ann (artist) Karen Clegg (artist, musician and Lubrizol staff) and Theo Stickley (arts and mental health practitioner and researcher for many years). But the decisions are down to the audience - who will they decide to give money to?

Apply to Pitch!

Have you got a great idea for using the arts or arts activities to enhance mental health or tackle mental health issues? This could be visual arts like painting, drawing or photography or dance, poetry, theatre, music, pottery, sculpture or architecture. Could a small amount of cash help to make it happen? Anybody can apply to pitch as long as it will help people in Nottinghshire.

To apply, please fill out an application form by 9am Tues 8th May. Application forms can be found here.

To support people wishing to apply, we are organising a drop-in session to give advice. This will be held on Friday 13th April 2.00-4.00pm at THiNK, Cobden Chambers, Off Pelham St, Nottingham, NG1 2ED.
