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.
We've started a new Facebook Group called Borderland Voices and the present Facebook page will disappear by mid Feb. We feel a "Group" will serve our needs better than a "Page"
NEW ON WEBSITE
The March 2014 newsletter has been added on the newsletter page (28/2/2014)
If you want to come to Burslem Park on the 4th March please be at BV by 1.15pm. It's our first visit to this beautifully restored Victorian Park & we'll have sole use of the Pavilion.
The Trustees meet again at the end of March. Any feedback, positive or negative, helps us provide the activities which you'd most enjoy. There's now a screw-top 'comments' jar near the kettle; put your ideas on paper, fold and pop in there.
If spring shows signs of developing and your thoughts turn to gardening, remember the seed-swaps (there's another in April) and Zan's monthly basic gardening workshops.
