The Red Earth Collective uses the arts to create and inspire stories that stimulate
thinking and dialogue about mental health. Our aim is to support and improve the mental health and well-being of marginalised and racialised communities.
One in four people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year
What we do
We work with professional and emerging artists, musicians and actors, that have experienced
mental health problems.
Together we create and deliver innovative and sustainable programmes, campaigns and events, that use, theatre, music. film and discussion to raise awareness, challenge stereotypes and support mental health and well-being.
We collaborate with The NHS, Statutory Services, Mental Health Charities, Faith Communities,
Universities and Community Organisations to enhance their capacity to engage with and improve
health outcomes for those they work with and support
