Johnny Barlow Theatre CompanyThe Johnny Barlow Theatre Company aims to create multimedia performances that inspire social action and positive community change. We achieve this through innovative collaborations between professional artists and adults with mental health issues and/or learning difficulties in weekly workshops. We provide a platform for people to express themselves creatively and through doing so, improve their own health and wellbeing. Our projects aim to raise awareness, reduce stigma and provide solutions to the impact of mental health and loneliness within the communities we work.

About the host organisationHosted by: Made by Mortals CICOrganisation Profile:
Made by Mortals is a not-for-profit social enterprise that delivers multimedia performance projects through creative collaborations with professional and participatory artist from a range of social and cultural backgrounds. We aim to challenge preconceptions of what is possible from a performance that has participated at its heart. Our projects are fundamentally about using creativity to bring about positive change - on a personal, social, artistic and community basis. We have three strands of work:
1. Hearts and Minds - workshops with over 55's to create music and drama performances aimed at intergenerational audiences, as well as to promote using creativity as a vehicle to improve health and wellbeing.
2. This Way Up - workshops with professional artists and adults with mental health issues and/or learning difficulties to create multimedia performances that inspire social action and positive community change.
3. Reshuffle - provide pathways into creative industries for young people in challenging circumstances
