About the Event
ABOUT LOVE ARTS FESTIVAL www.loveartsleeds.co.uk
Love Arts Festival is a celebration of creativity and mental well-being in Leeds. It started in 2010 and is the first arts festival run by an NHS Trust in England. Every October sees a diverse spread of exhibitions, gigs, workshops, performances and more. Most of the events are organised by our various partners across the city – and we bring them under the umbrella of Love Arts.
The Festival is run by the Arts & Minds team, alongside festival volunteers. Arts & Minds is a project set up by Leeds & York Partnerships NHS Foundation Trust that promotes the use of creativity within mental health services and provides opportunities for people in the community.
The main aim of the Festival is to get people talking about mental health. We want the artwork or performances to spark a conversation. The more we talk about mental health, the more society learns to accept those who have had difficulties. Creativity is a great way to start that conversation.
ABOUT SISTERHOOD MUSIC COLLECTIVE GIGS
Sisterhood live gigs also include the artists interviewing each other about their experiences of being and independent musicians and issues that affect us individually and collectively such as mental health, ageism and sexism. They also reveal some of their experiences of the artistic process and their song writing journeys. Audience members are also encouraged to ask questions!
At the heart of Sisterhood is the belief that collaborating and not competing with fellow musicians makes us stronger, not only musically but also emotionally. Female musicians are still underrepresented in the wider music industry. Sisterhood aims to address some of the issues faced by women in music, especially those who are not only writing, recording and performing their own material but also managing themselves and their careers, and ultimately encourage other women to write, perform and collaborate too.
