Manifesto events with BSL interpretation:

Still from Wayfaring Stranger

Skye Longeragan: May Contain Nuts (*), 2-3pm, is a BSL interpreted performance. This absurd new comedy from award-winning theatre-maker Skye Loneragan questions the need to verify fictional depictions of mental ill health as true. A joyful work-in-progress performance.

Traumascapes: On Survivors’ Terms, 5-6pm, will include captioned screenings and a BSL interpreted discussion. A fascinating event, focusing on filmmaking as a channel through which to reclaim the narrative of trauma and mental health on survivors’ own terms. Includes a special preview of an excerpt from Andrea Luka Zimmerman’s new feature Wayfaring Stranger.

Manifesto events to be live streamed:

If you can’t make it to Glasgow on Wednesday 4 October, you can still engage with Manifesto online via our two live streamed events. Both events will be available on SHMAF’s YouTube channel.
