Borderland Voices a charity promoting Health and Well-being through the Arts



Leek: once, now & next - a Festival organised by BV and Stone & Water celebrating Leek's past, present & future. See the programme for October



Borderland Voices was founded in 1998 in Leek, Staffordshire and currently works across the Staffordshire Moorlands. Our aim is to promote mental health through the arts and to raise public awareness and understanding of mental health issues by delivering accessible arts projects and offering creative space for self-expression within a mutually supportive community.





To write what
I did not know I need to say.
To hear, to read,
to keep mad dogs at bay.

Freedom to listen unbiased
by cold chandler's
false indoctrination's wax.

Alive. Alight. Not lax.

Freedom to breathe out again
expel past pain
and smile, and live again.




BV is one of Leek Waitrose's chosen charitiesfor October. Please support us.
