BRIGHTON FRINGE FESTIVAL: Mindful Iris



The iris is a symbol of wisdom, hope, trust and valour. All good qualities to look for in a song.

Songs have been chosen for possible insights and advice about mental well-being. The overall message is uplifting – songwriters are constructive about your mental health!

We will sing and talk about songs encouraging supportive relationships, social physical activities, arts and craft and creative work, and music itself. We’ll ponder the benefits of smiling, singing, sisterly compassion, touch, knitting, walking, acceptance, connection, nurturing, painting, and dancing! It’s not an exhaustive list!

So, one hour of gentle acoustic music – just voice and guitar. A little talk about the poetry, wit and wisdom within the lyrics. No demands. You can just listen and enjoy. It should be an upbeat experience.

Any profits will go to the charity Mind www.mindcharity.co.uk

Mindful Iris is Anna (vocals) and Ian (acoustic guitar)

Chainsaw & THE GIRL: Music, Subculture & Magick

A Collaboration between
BILLY CHAINSAW and GIRL SH*T

Chainsaw & THE GIRL is a unique collaboration between artists BILLY CHAINSAW & GIRL SH*T: one that explores their shared love of MUSIC, SUBCULTURE & MAGICK, one that will take over the CONCLAVE Brighton basement exhibition space with a very special, week-long installation.

 
BILLY CHAINSAW artist statement: “In my early teens I developed an obsession with American comic books, masks, the movies, magick, and author William S. Burroughs… elements that repeatedly feature in my mixed-media, cut up pop art.
 

THE GIRL (aka GIRL SH*T) artist statement: “GIRL SH*T is informed by a love of subcultures, music, ’zines, gig posters, fashion, art, design and punk feminism.”
