Mathias T. Christensen
I am a multidisciplinary artist, performer, writer and form part of Mad Pride Hull. I organize the Chaos Office workshops – a playful, performative session for breaking down and transforming the bureaucracy and professionalism of office workplaces. We invite participants to freely explore and set free their own individualities and creativity in the office.
I am a community worker and poet, and a member of Mad Pride Hull. I have experience of my own journey with the highs and lows that are often labelled as “bipolar”.
Hello, I am Kaitlyn Robson and I am 16 years old. I represent Hull as a Youth Parliament representative (MYP). I also volunteer to HeadStart Hull and wrote and recorded one of the poems in the You are Not Alone soundscape. I volunteer because I want to change the stigma around mental health and help improve the resilience and emotional well-being of young people.
I’m Kenn Taylor, I’m the Creative Director of Artlink Hull and a writer with a particular interest in culture, community and the urban environment. I was diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder when I was 20 and have experienced different mental health challenges in my life as well having volunteered and worked on mental health related projects.
