To wave goodbye to summer, Loose Lips are raising funds and spreading the awareness of Core Arts, an amazing Hackney-based charity who promote positive mental health and well-being through creative learning. Their amazing artistic work with mental health patients was shown to lead to a 96% non-re-admission rate in a recent NHS study.
This creative approach to dealing with mental health still really needs its word spreading though. And so come down to Grow for an eclectic 12 hours of live music and DJs. Expect everything from UK Hip Hop to Samba, breakbeats and Disco.
Donations taken in aid of Corearts, with 10% of the bar-take also being donated.
