Event: Hackney House to Host BACKSLANG Spoken Word Event in Aid of CALM

by Mental Movement Magazine

Saturday 21st October will see an array of talent coming together in aid of supporting the conversation surrounding the importance of mens mental health.

Combine the stigma of mental health and the ‘rules’ of masculinity and you have a problem. A serious problem. That’s why Backslang and CALM (a charity dedicated to male suicide: the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK) have teamed up for an evening of spoken word and music to get men talking.

The evening will feature performances from some of the leading spoken word artists on the scene including, Cecilia Knapp, Anthony Anaxagorou, Tommy Sissons, Yomi Sode, IggyLdn, Tilly Mackintosh and Timothy Horwell. The event will also showcase an art collaboration from Luke Norton and music from DELF.
