Boots to Books
Folkestone Town Council have given us a grant towards the cost of making a permanent record of some of our guided walks by publishing them in book form.
The Dragon Café is Mental Fight Club’s latest creative project: a relaxing café and imaginative space, open to all, located in the Crypt of St George the Martyr Church, opposite Borough tube station. The creative director of Mental Fight Club is Sarah Wheeler , One of the contributors to Transitions 2 which was launched at the Folkestone Book Festival in November 2012.
To launch the search for contributors to Transitions 3 which we intend to publish in May 2013. We are staging readings from Transitions 2 with music from the Afro-jazz singer Maiuko a contributor to both Transitions 1 and 2.Transitions 3 invites people to write about their journey into mental illness and their recovery from it. By turning back to myth – even that of Orpheus’ or Demeter’s descent - perhaps we can look forward to a greater story of which we are part, and by understanding the universal aspect of our own personal experience be freed from its constraints. Our theme will be Ascent. Recovery. Transformation. Reintegration.
