SICK! is back for 2019 and this Autumn we’re once again joining the festival to present a programme of local and international art all about mental and physical health.

The festival will be heading out across the city with 3 weeks of performance, exhibition and discussion exploring the question – What is the value of life? – from the three distinct perspectives of disability, end of life care and young people’s mental health.

During week 3 of the festival we are co-presenting 3 performances which explore young people’s mental health, Baby Fever, Wild Life FM and The Year My Vagina Tried To Kill Me.
