**INTERRUPTED** presents a night of live music for World Mental Health Awareness Day, which aims to promote mental wellbeing in a gig environment. It may seem obvious but there is strong evidence for the link between music and physical/mental wellbeing.
“Rhythm and its entertainment of movement (and often emotion), its power to ‘move’ people, in both senses of the word, may well have had a crucial cultural and economic function in human evolution, bring people together, producing a sense of collectivity and community.”
~ Oliver Sacks, British neurologist, naturalist and author.
All profits will be given to The Clock Tower Sanctuary who are the only drop-in service providing all-round information, advice and support to homeless young people aged 16-25 years old in Brighton & Hove. They have a team of volunteers who provide a friendly, bright, centrally-located, safe space for young people to engage with their peers and other visiting agencies – without the worry of having to share a service with older people who can be intimidating.
TCTS mission: ‘To prevent young homeless people from becoming part of the long-term homeless population’.
“The average life expectancy of a rough sleeper is 46 years old –we aim to do everything we can, with the available resources and working in partnership with local agencies, to prevent homeless young people from becoming part of that statistic in the future. The gig will raise awareness about youth homelessness and the funds raised will help us continue to provide our vital service, enabling vulnerable young people in Brighton get their lives back on track.”
