Women Connect UK To Host Mental Health Event at Ticketmaster HQ
The female-led initiative Women Connect UK will be hosting a mental health event next Wednesday at Ticketmaster HQ. This initiative is a joint venture between Acoustic Live and What If, with immense support by Sony Music Entertainment and Metropolis Music.
The initial idea of Women Connect formed in honour of International Women’s Day. Due to extremely popular demand, another event organised by the team was sold out in July 2019, with the main focus being Period Poverty.
The evening will include a spoken word performance by Arcadie Poet, a performance by the talented Che Lingo, and various panel discussions by people in the UK music scene. There will be professionals present from established mental health charities such as MIND, and an ice-breaker exercise led by Music PR professional Jess Kangalee.
This event will be centralised around Mental Health and the stigma surrounding it. This is an inclusive event, that aims to provide support for womxn in the creative industries.
The evening will involve speakers from Sony Music UK, Help Musicians UK, Getahead, Music and You and BAPAM.
Due to popular demand, the event is currently sold out, but you can join the waiting list here.
