Centre Space & Richard Snell Presents…
Go Fund Me Page – Here
White Monkey is a series of short stories written by Richard Snell. Richard has suffered with mental health issues throughout his life. When Covid-19 forced us all in to lockdown earlier this year, Richard like many became distressed and realised a good way to cope with his distress was to put together his poems and stories in which he tackles his personal demons and how he has fought to come to terms with them.
He would like to have his stories told in visual form and by using video and animation, we would like to take his story and create a series of videos that help people understand what living with mental health is really like.
With your help we can make this happen. Your support will go a long way in helping us to create this series of short films, which will focus on showing how it can feel living with this illness throughout life. We hope to show them to people who aren’t suffering and those who are in hopes that everyone will walk away from this series with a better understanding of how depression can affect a person, for better and worse.
Centre Space presents in association with the F.C.A…
As this year has been unusual to say the least, we wanted to do something fun and creative with the community (in a safe environment of course) as the years comes to an end. We currently have a card competition for Foster parents and their children, something to give them an opportunity to create and to just have fun in this disorientating time. The amazing artwork we receive will be published through November on wards so be sure to look out for their incredible work.
