MaDCaff Funding Success – Launch Night…

Miranda playing at Schizophrenic The MaDCaff  Project, led by Miranda Betts, with support from Disability Arts Cymru has secured funding from Time to Change Wales to put on MaDCaff, stigma-busting open cafe events in Ceredigion.

Miranda Betts from New Quay has secured funding from Time to Change Wales to put on MaDCaff, a much-needed new music and dance project across Ceredigion. These open cafe events will showcase the talents of local musicians and dancers who are, or have been affected by mental illness. The MaDCaff Launch Event will take place at 4.30-7pm on Friday March 21st, in Aberystwyth University Students’ Union bar. Tickets are free from Eventbrite and you can buy a £3 refreshment voucher on the door.

There will be a ‘swap-shop’ at each cafe event, where people can bring and swap CDs, books, clothes etc, as well as time to talk and meet new people, and of course, tea and cake! The swap theme at the first event is CDs.

Miranda is hoping to attract people both with and without experience of mental health conditions to come along and enjoy the music and dance performances. “The main aim behind the project is to give musicians and dancers with mental health problems a safe space to share their stories, skills and talents, and to get people together, talking about mental health”, says Miranda. People with either personal or professional experience of Mental Health conditions are equally welcome.

Mental health problems affect 1 in 4 people in any year; it could be you, someone in your family, a friend or colleague. Time to Change Wales is the first national campaign to end the stigma and discrimination faced by people with mental health problems in Wales. For further information contact Miranda on westmadcaff@gmail.com. Or look us on Facebook or at our Blog, madcaff.wordpress.com.

The MaDCaff Project is funded by Time to Change Wales and supported by Disability Arts Cymru.

The Deaf Cultural Centre

deaf explorersThe Deaf Cultural Centre will give deaf artists support to work professionally, and to create new work in the future that can be presented at the DCC and other venues. Their objective is to encourage and support deaf artists to work in the arts more and promote Deaf culture by demonstrating an artistic-led approach to diversity and access. Explorers is a wealth of high quality creativity on offer to arts organisations, and venues. They hope networking, collaborations, commissions and grants follow after their intrepid explorers international travel & research. They also believe the explorers will open doors for deaf audiences; by creating spaces and events where Deaf people, hearing people & hard of hearing people can all mix and socialize together and learn more and explore more about Deaf culture.

They invited deaf creative’s to apply, challenging them to present proposals that would stretch their artistic practice, encouraging them to be inspired by international artists.The response was brilliant with extremely high quality proposals from the West Midlands & across the UK. They think Explorers is a fantastic opportunity and hope you do too. If you are an arts organisation or promotor and wish to meet an explorer to show or develop their work please contact them.
