When Daisies Talk is a collection of poetry written by Mica Gray, an assistant psychologist working in mental health services. The book explores the writers own experiences with psychosis and depression.
The event will be in the form of an immersive performance, which will see Mica read selected poems from the collection. This will be accompanied by a backdrop of sound and visuals references exploring themes such as race in the mental health system, culture, spirituality, faith, womanhood, healing, self-care love and identity.
We will end with a Q&A where we hope to discuss issues of mental health particularly amongst people of colour.
This event is presented by WOKE.UK in partnership with Close Up Cinema.
Please join us on Thursday 9th May from 7-9pm at Close Up Cinema, Shoreditch, London, E1 6HR
