Liverpool Mental Health Consortium and Writing on the Wall celebrated the launch of the soundscape: Finding Some Way Through (A City of the Mind), created by project participants, led by composer and musical director Patrick Dineen.
On Monday 16th January at The Rotunda Cafe, we had an excellent turn out, full of enthusiasm and thought-provoking listeners willing to add their own 'inner city' thoughts to the city the participants had already created.
We recognise that mental health is an issue that never goes away, although we aired this piece on Blue Monday we would like to play the piece wherever necessary. If you feel like you know a place that would like to help raise mental health awareness by playing this piece, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you missed out on hearing the piece, it is now available to listen to on the Liverpool Mental Health Consortium's Soundcloud.

On Saturday 23 November 2013 ten children were shot dead. The youngest was nine; the oldest was nineteen. They fell in suburbs, hamlets and ghettos. None made the national news. It was just another day in the death of America, where on average seven children and teens are killed by guns daily.
Gary Younge will be in conversation with WoW's very own Madeline Heneghan, Co-director of Writing on the Wall.
