Emoodji – to help people at uni stay mentally healthy

EmoodjiDo you know a student (maybe you are a student)? The thing is,⭐we just made an app⭐ called Emoodji – to help people at uni stay mentally healthy – available now for iPhone and Android!

We really need your help 😍 spreading the word, by sharing these links to students up and down the UK 😎:

And it definitely is *not* your typical ‘mental health app’…

Emoodji is a way for friends at uni to send emoji selfies to each other, while also keeping an eye on each other’s wellbeing. You probably know how mental health problems can seemingly start at Uni, sometimes with devastating results (in fact, 1 in 8 students have felt suicidal at university). So Emoodji is quite silly, and secretly slightly serious too.

This exhibition is a Tu Fewn project and presented as part of LGAC’s “Maker to Curator” series.

Cosy – 8th to12th March – WMC

Cosy-main“It’s like I’ve disappeared. I walk down the road and throw no shadow.”
“That’s what getting older does for you.”

Rose wants an exit plan that is bold and invigorating, but her three warring daughters have other ideas. We all have to die, but what makes a good death? Everyone seems to have an opinion, Rose’s three daughters, her precocious granddaughter and even the strange woman taking refuge in the garden.

Cosy is a darkly comedic look at the joys and humiliations of getting older and how we shuffle off this mortal coil. Written by award-winning writer Kaite O’Reilly, it tackles head-on our obsession with eternal youth, and asks whose life (or death) is it, anyway?
