Singing for Mental Health Awareness Week

Ffotogallery are happy to announce the rescheduled date for an evening of song with Choir With No Name and Choirs For Good on Wednesday 17th May, 6-8pm.

The Choir with No Name have been successfully running choirs and building joyful communities with homeless and marginalised people since 2008. There are six choirs across the UK. The Cardiff choir, run in partnership with the Wallich, was launched in 2021.

Choir With No Name is founded on the premise that singing makes you feel good; it distracts you from all the nonsense in life and helps you to build confidence, skills and genuine, long lasting friendships.

Choirs For Good are a network of community wellbeing choirs. They exist to promote the importance and benefits of community singing, not just upon an individual's physical and mental wellbeing, but also the many wonderful ways that choirs can unite people and contribute back to their local communities and realise their potential in wider society.

During the evening both choirs will perform some beautiful songs for us as well as deliver a short workshop where we can all get involved and experience the power of song to improve our well being, so it is fitting that this event will take place during Mental Health Awareness Week.
