London based events collective Sundance Kids have announced the next instalment of their 'Dancing For Mental Health' residency at The Book Club, Shoreditch, set to take place Thursday 29th of March, with a mission to help influence a shift towards mental health being discussed more openly.
Sundance Kids is the concept of Felix Harvey-Jefferson and Kiran Kumar who study medicine together at UCL. The night is fronted primarily by resident DJs, spinning disco, funk, garage and everything in between. They say:
“More than 1 in 3 people will experience a period of mental illness in their life, yet we are living in a culture that struggles to see mental illness for what it is - an illness. As a result, we have developed into a society that find it difficult to open up to our friends and families. Sundance aims to fight the stigma surrounding the label of mental ill-health.
When choosing where to hold our event, it was important that we could build a space in which people can be themselves whatever that means. The Book Club’s music and culture programme is in line with our zero tolerance policy to intimidating, discriminatory and judgemental behaviour, allowing us to create a fully inclusive night which is an integral value to our events.”
£1 from every ticket will be donated to the mental health charity SANE.
