Following a successful funding bid, Equity's Bristol & West General Branch are delighted to announce it will host a symposium event around Mental Health within the Entertainment Industry at Bristol Old Vic on 2nd October 2019, ahead of World Mental Health Day (October 10th).

UNKNOWN FUNDS

To fund this event, the branch applied for one of Equity's 'Unknown Funds' grants. In January 2017, a High Court ruling permitted that a mystery £1 million discovered in Equity’s accounts can be used for union purposes as well as donated to charity [more info here]. The funding for the event was approved by Equity Council, and we extend our thanks to all Councillors who were involved in this decision.

THE EVENT

The symposium event is intended to be a day-long seminar of key-note speeches, panel Q&A's, and Open-Space discussions all about the issues and concerns around Mental Health in our industry. A huge amount of good work is being done all around our industry on the subject of Mental Health, in response to a crisis which is growing ever-more clear. This feels like the right time to bring some of those voices together for a conversation about what the next steps forward might be.

The schedule and list of speakers for this event will be announced in the next few weeks. The physical capacity of this symposium is 80. Tickets are being released in batches. The event is open to both Equity members and non-members. The hosted remote access will be limited to 10 connections and will be allocated on the application of expressions of interest.

EOI FORM LINK

We welcome any offers of skills and time towards the organisation of this event (press contacts especially) - The symposium will primarily be coordinated by volunteers from the branch's committee. We will need hands-on help during the event day.

Please indicate during registration your offer to help.
