A FRIEND .. put up a link to mental health
on facebook. Having someone to talk to, yet feeling secure is a problem that has arisen out of social media. While I consider her action brave asking for support, I'm aware that this problem is related to finding worth through twitter and facebook, instagram. So for me I would say keep on feeding your self worth.
The London Peace Prize is a resident-based award given to a person whose life's endeavours have contributed to enhancing understanding and neighbourliness. Nominees are chosen from people who have made invaluable contributions to their community, people who have seen the need for change and have become that change through the lives they affect. Charlie Wiseman founded the award as a culmination of years of working with disadvantaged and homeless people worldwide.
Charlie is also one who does not ever sneer at women, which is why his first work with Grassmarket Project, MAD, led Sarah Kane to remark throughout her career as a dramatist saying that she knew what she wanted to do after watching Grassmarket's work. Also it is why his counterpart Laura Hymers has been keen to lead as Editor-in-Chief of the Wand Arts Review, with her poets, painters and Isis Olivier's collaborating on theatre play Little Sisters, their latest work in which vulnerable street women were invited to watch the performance, a satirical game show called Big Sister. The play likening the, now regular fixture, Big Brother to a gladiatorial competition where the women are voted back or evicted onto the street, which Kate Smurthwaite was so impressed by that she has also performed with them while actor Timothy West filmed scenes that were projected alongside those of Kate and the evicted women.
